Patients with pancreatic diseases and disorders can find expert, compassionate care at the Pancreas Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, where a team of specialists provide personalized treatments for cancerous and noncancerous conditions, including pancreatitis, pancreatic stones and pancreatic cysts and necrosis and pseudocysts.
In particular, we excel in early diagnosis, minimally invasive interventions, surgical services and palliative treatment that aims to relieve patients’ symptoms and improve their quality of life using cutting edge techniques.
Our approach is collaborative, with a team of physicians — specializing in surgery, advanced endoscopy, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pain management, nutrition, radiology, and pathology — working together alongside nurse practitioners, patient navigators and other medical and support professionals to deliver seamless, comprehensive care.
As part of a large academic medical center, we can also refer patients to experts who can care for other medical issues they may have, such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
Our multidisciplinary approach extends beyond the exam room and into the laboratory, where our physicians search for new and better ways to treat pancreatic diseases and disorders. Their research also provides patients with opportunities to participate in clinical trials, which allows patients to access therapies that may not be available anywhere else.
Education is also a large part of the Pancreas Program. As part of the Center for Advanced Digestive Care, the program regularly provides educational seminars for patients and their families. We also collaborate with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, which funds research and links patients and their families to support and education.
