    When you become a patient at the Pancreas and Biliary Tumor Center, you and your loved ones have access to our extensive array of support programs and services before, during, and after your treatment.

    We provide a wide range of support services, resources, and survivorship care for our patients. These programs can help you and your family address issues that you may face as a result of your cancer and its treatment, like fatigue or depression.

    Survivorship care and follow-up testing

    All patients in the Center receive comprehensive, personalized post-treatment care. We pride ourselves on providing each patient with a personalized follow-up care plan, with clear steps for monitoring your health after treatment ends.

    After completing therapy, you will stay under close surveillance. Usually this includes tumor marker and radiology tests every three to six months for at least the first few years after finishing treatment. In some cases, patients travelling long distances for care may have follow-up and surveillance coordinated with physicians closer to their home.

    Managing symptoms and side effects

    We understand that the symptoms from both cancer and cancer treatment can be physically and emotionally challenging. We can assist in helping you feel better, managing your symptoms with nutritional guidance, pain management, counseling, complementary and integrative therapies, and more.
