Providing team-based treatment and support to all patients
The center offers multidisciplinary care to patients affected with pancreatic diseases such as:
- pancreatic adenocarcinoma,
- neuroendocrine tumors,
- cystic neoplasms,

We use the latest treatment for pancreatic tumors, including:

- Specialized CT scan and endoscopic ultrasound procedures for diagnosis and staging
- Combined treatment approaches for localized pancreatic cancer
- Surgeons with extensive operative experience in the removal of part or all of pancreatic tumors
- Rapid reports to your primary care physician
Pancreatic Tumor Board
Following an evaluation with a surgeon, every case will be reviewed by our Multidisciplinary Pancreatic Tumor Conference for careful consideration of all radiological studies, pathologic information, current treatment to date, and coordination of other needed studies. A clear treatment plan will be outlined for every patient.
