Pancreatic Diseases Program
Our program was formed in 2013 to address the clinical issues and concerns faced by patients and their families with pancreatic disease, such as pancreatic cancer, pancreatic cysts, and pancreatitis. We provide the latest treatments in collaboration with other Yale programs such as the Yale Cancer Center. Our team comprises doctors from several fields to provide patients with the most comprehensive care, including advanced endoscopy, gastroenterology, surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, and genetics. Our nurses and advanced practice nurses are also highly experienced in pancreatic diseases.
It is important to us that we educate our patients about pancreatic disease and its related procedures and treatments. We believe this empowers patients and family members to take an active role in their health care decisions, which can lead to an improved quality of life.

- Pancreatic cancer
