Pancreatic Cancer

The diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer is best handled by a multidisciplinary team of specialists with expertise in diagnosing and treating the disease and relieving patients' symptoms. This is the approach taken by experts in the Pancreas Program at the Center for Advanced Digestive Care of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Services include the latest advanced endoscopic techniques, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. By utilizing state-of-the-art perioperative and intraoperative management and laparoscopy to confirm the need for open surgery, mortality rates for pancreatectomies are among the best in the nation. Our team is also conducting clinical trials of promising new therapies to improve pancreatic cancer prognosis.
