At the Pancreas and Biliary Tumor Center, clinicians and researchers are working every day to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pancreatic and biliary tumors.
Our Multidisciplinary Pancreatic Cancer Clinic coordinates appointments for pancreatic cancer patients, making clinic visits as streamlined as possible. For appropriate patients our team schedules back-to-back visits with providers, including medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, on the same day. While at the clinic, patients will also begin and end their day meeting with an advanced practice provider who will review medical records, ensure proper tests and imaging are done, and walk each patient through their care. This convenient approach to scheduling enables patients to receive the highest level of care as soon as possible.
