Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer death in the United States.
One reason for the often poor outcome of pancreatic cancer is the location of the pancreas deep inside the body. Pancreatic tumors can’t be seen or felt by doctors during routine physical exams, and patients usually have no symptoms until the cancer has spread to other organs.
At the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Health Center our gastrointestinal cancer surgeons diagnose and treat pancreas cancer with the most advanced therapies available. We provide focused, personalized care via a team that consists of surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists and specially trained support staff, all to help you make the most informed decision about your care.
As a center for treatment of advanced cancer, we offer innovative treatments, including immunotherapy, against pancreatic cancer.
