The multispecialty team of physicians at our Gastrointestinal Oncology Program takes a collaborative approach to treatment that focuses on addressing pancreatic cancer from several angles to achieve a positive outcome and a higher quality of life for patients. As a pancreatic cancer patient at Moffitt, your treatment team may include:

Treatment for pancreatic cancer can take several forms. A combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy is often recommended to remove tumors or halt their growth. At Moffitt, our physicians are highly experienced in practicing progressive treatments, such as endoscopic ultrasound therapy, minimally invasive robotic procedures and immunotherapy. Under the same roof, supportive care from dietitians, pain intervention specialists, social workers, counselors and other professionals are available to help patients cope with the physical and emotional challenges that can accompany a cancer diagnosis.
Additionally, Moffitt spearheads many robust clinical trials for pancreatic cancer, allowing our patients have access to the latest breakthroughs in pancreatic cancer treatment before they are made widely available. We are the only Florida-based, National Cancer Center Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center – a distinction that speaks directly to our commitment to finding new, promising treatments for the most complex and challenging cancers.
