Overview

Overview

Our pancreatic cancer program unites pancreatic surgeons, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists and psychologists, who together work to customize the best possible treatment for patients and give them improved quality of life. This collaboration also means that patients get the care they need right away, rather than waiting for separate appointments with various specialists. U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Hospitals” survey has ranked Cleveland Clinic No. 2 in the nation in gastroenterology and No. 7 in the nation in cancer.
