Your Pancreatic Cancer Specialists
The pancreatic cancer specialists in the Gastrointestinal Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center take a multispecialty approach to treatment. Each of our experts works closely with the other members of our tumor board to provide every patient with a highly individualized treatment plan.
Moffitt's pancreatic cancer team is one of the nation’s largest and busiest clinical and research practices. Performing hundreds pancreatic cancer procedures each year, our surgeons have mastered traditional surgical techniques as well as advanced, minimally invasive approaches. Because pancreatic cancer is relatively uncommon, the experience of a patient’s treatment team is paramount – and this is true for both surgical and nonsurgical treatment.
Moffitt’s collaborative team of pancreatic cancer specialists includes:
- Fellowship-trained surgeons
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
The pancreatic cancer specialists at Moffitt work hard to ensure that each patient has access to innovative surgical techniques, new chemotherapy drugs and clinical trials, if appropriate and elected. Our goal is to effectively treat pancreatic cancer while providing each patient with the best possible quality of life. Toward that end, our compassionate supportive care specialists offer a wide range of services designed to help our patients and their families cope with the physical, emotional and logistical concerns related to life during and after treatment for pancreatic cancer.
Moffitt’s pancreatic cancer specialists consistently achieve patient outcomes that exceed the national averages. In recognition of our extensive research and advances in cancer treatment, the National Cancer Institute has designated Moffitt as a Comprehensive Cancer Center. We are the only provider based in Florida to have been recognized in this manner, which is a true testament to our unwavering dedication to bettering the lives of all current and future cancer patients.
