Treatment Options

Ochsner is a high volume center for all types of pancreatic surgery, including the Whipple procedure, minimally invasive techniques, and robotic surgery. In addition, many chemotherapy treatments are available, including newer regimens with improved tumor response rates and chemotherapy clinical trials. Radiation therapy is often used to treat pancreatic cancer and is routinely discussed during multidisciplinary treatment planning.

Excellent Outcomes

There is strong evidence that outcomes are best when performed in centers and by surgeons with a large volume of patient experience, and the surgeons at Ochsner have the highest patient volumes in the Gulf South.
