A multi-disciplinary team of physicians at The Nebraska Medical Center started the Carcinoid Clinic as a way to take the disease from medical curiosity to curable condition.

The Carcinoid Clinic at The Nebraska Medical Center offers patients quality and comprehensive care. Patients will meet doctors with a variety of specialties during their clinic visit. Patients at the clinic can expect to consult with a medical oncologist, surgeon and even a family practice physician. In addition to providing treatment to patients, the carcinoid clinic will also have a significant role in research. A grant from the NU Foundation provided money for the clinic to hire a research nurse who will work closely with the multidisciplinary physicians. The physicians involved with the clinic believe The Nebraska Medical Center and UNMC is the ideal place for such a clinic. The medical center is home to an internationally known liver and intestinal transplant program and the UNMC Eppley Cancer Center. The Eppley Cancer Center is recognized by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and is a founding member institution of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). Doctors hope the medical center's reputation for patient care and research, along with a convenient geographic location in the center of the U.S. will make visiting the clinic a realistic option for patients from all over the country.
