CLINICAL CARE TEAM

Pancreas Surgery

Studies have shown that patients who undergo pancreas surgery at high-volume centers that performs more than 16 pancreas operations per year experience fewer complications and enjoy more successful outcomes. Our Pancreas Center performs nearly 200 pancreas operations per year.

Gastroenterology

Performing over 1,500 EUS and ERCP procedures each year, the Pancreas Center GI/Endoscopy team has developed a highly sophisticated procedural expertise.

Medical Oncology

Optimism is the driving force behind the Pancreas Center medical oncology team's view of patient care. Unwilling to approach pancreatic cancer with the hopelessness that often accompanies a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, our team administers chemotherapy pre-operatively, post-operatively, and for primary treatment.
