Hi. My husband has carcinoid tumors on his liver....too much of the liver is involved for surgery...a year of chemo has not stopped their growth and the tumors are secondary to a large small intestine tumor removed 10 years ago..would he be a candidate for this procedure ?and is Halifax NS now doing this procedure ?
