Surgery for pancreatic cancer

We perform a range of difficult and complex surgical procedures for pancreatic cancer, in cases where the tumor can be safely and completely removed by surgery. The nature and extent of surgery for resectable pancreatic tumors depends upon the location and size of the tumor.

Some surgical procedures we offer include:

Your care team may also recommend other treatments for pancreatic cancer in addition to, or in place of, surgery. For instance, in an effort to try to make a previously inoperable pancreas potentially resectable, your care team may recommend chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy prior to considering surgery for pancreatic cancer.
