At the Ochsner Cancer Institute Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Center, this pessimistic approach is unacceptable. We take pride in offering hope to patients with this difficult disease.

Unique Patient Benefits
Each patient at the Pancreatic Cancer Treatment Center is evaluated at a multidisciplinary conference where an individualized treatment plan is developed with the input of the entire pancreatic cancer team. This team consists of surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, and radiologists. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that all possible treatment strategies are discussed, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. The team also discusses clinical trial opportunities for patients who are interested in this option. For patients with precancerous conditions, our team follows national standards for treatment and surveillance.
