The diagnosis of stage IV disease in gastrointestinal cancers mostly concern the liver and may suggest that palliative chemotherapy is the only choice. However, over the last 20 years, advances in minimally invasive liver surgery, regenerative liver surgery, and locoregional therapy have shown that patients with liver metastases can be cured or their lives extended through interventions, while maintaining a good quality of life. Patients with stage IV disease gastrointestinal cancers now have multiple treatment options which allow the potential of cure with minimal side effects.
