Pancreatic Surgery

We understand that pancreatic cancer, as one of the most difficult and complex diseases to treat, requires an aggressive approach. At Guthrie, you'll have your own care team comprised of cancer experts from multiple disciplines. Our fellowship-trained pancreatic surgeon has the skills and talent you need when dealing with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, including the Whipple procedure. Only available at Guthrie, the Whipple procedure is a complex surgery that may extend your prognosis or be a possible cure.

At Guthrie, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to locate and stage the disease. Then together, you and your care team will develop a pancreatic cancer treatment plan that's right for you.

Your individualized plan will include advanced pancreatic cancer treatments combined with supportive therapies to help reduce side effects, avoid treatment interruptions and keep you strong.
