Moffitt Cancer Center – one of the leading destinations for pancreatic cancer treatment – is conveniently located in Tampa, just a short drive away from Bradenton, Florida. Moffitt is the local choice for world-class pancreatic cancer treatment.
Although Moffitt is a high-volume cancer center, we realize that every patient deserves individualized attention. That’s why our oncologists tailor each patient’s treatment plan to his or her specific needs, based on details such as:
- The cellular makeup of the tumor (cell samples are analyzed in our cutting edge pathology lab)
- The size, location and stage of the cancer
- The patient’s age, health, prior treatment history and personal preferences
After evaluating these and other personal factors, we will design a one-of-a-kind treatment plan using evidence-based recommendations. Patients from Bradenton can come to us for a wide range of pancreatic cancer treatment options, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy and/or surgery – including minimally invasive and robotic procedures – along with innovative options such as immunotherapy, biological therapies and other novel breakthroughs. Plus, once treatment is underway, our multispecialty tumor board meets on a weekly basis to ensure that the patient is responding optimally to the therapy. If changes are necessary, our team will discuss a change in dosages or techniques to potentially obtain better outcomes and the highest quality of life.
No matter what pancreatic cancer treatment options a patient receives, Moffitt can deliver that treatment with unmatched skill. Our oncologists – including surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists who all specialize in treating patients with pancreatic cancer – are among the most experienced in the field. And, because our team is heavily involved in pancreatic cancer research, they are able to provide our patients with the newest treatment techniques and therapies before they become widely available.
To help alleviate some of the stress associated with traveling for cancer treatment, Moffitt has partnered with several local hotels. These properties offer exceptional hospitality services at specially discounted rates, and ensure that all of our patients have a clean, comfortable place to stay during treatment.
