Esophageal Cancer Clinical Trial
Esophageal Cancer Multimodal Prehabilitation Study
The goal of this research study is to investigate the feasibility of implementing a prehabilitation program that aims to improve a patient's physical, nutritional, and sleep health before surgery in an older, at-risk group with esophageal cancer.
This research study is to test whether a novel, 4-week surgical multimodal prehabilitation protocol is feasible in at-risk older adult patients who have previously undergone neoadjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy and are scheduled for surgical removal of esophageal cancer.
Research study procedures include screening for eligibility, clinic visits, questionnaires, blood tests, and Computed Tomography (CT) scans.
Participation in this research study is expected to last 7 months.
It is expected about 30 patients will participate in this study.
