The Pancreas Center of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center (NYPH/CUMC) is founded on the principle that treatment of pancreas disorders demands a commitment to collaboration in patient care.
In addition to upholding an exacting standard of highly coordinated, compassionate, and dedicated patient care at the Pancreas Center, we deeply value the insights of medical research and continually pursue new avenues of diagnosis and treatment.
These are some of the reasons patients come to us from all over the world.
As part of NYPH/CUMC and the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are fortunate to have some of the best practitioners in every medical discipline.
Pancreas Center patients have access to a highly experienced, multi-disciplinary team of gastroenterologists, oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, nurse practitioners, geneticists, genetic counselors, and nutritionists.
Together, we collaborate to meet the diagnosis, intervention, prevention, and treatment needs of each patient.
Our commitment to championing the health of our patients is our defining characteristic.
The expertise of the practitioners at the Pancreas Center, together with the benefits gained from being part of a large institution with a track record of excellence in research and patient care, make it possible for us to maintain our position at the forefront of imaging applications, surgical techniques, risk stratification, genetics, screening, and early detection of pancreatic disorders.
Here at the Pancreas Center we understand that a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer can be incredibly stressful and discouraging for patients and families.
Throughout our many years of treating this disease, we have shared the emotional burden with our patients and therefore are committed to finding new ways to fight pancreatic cancer. We are here for you and your family.
We look forward to putting our resources to work for you.
