The Tampa General Hospital Pancreatic Cancer Program Offers Comprehensive and Integrated Care
Pancreatic cancer can be difficult to detect and diagnose because symptoms often don’t arise until the condition reaches the late stages and spreads to other organs. The diagnosis and management of pancreatic cancer require a team of exceptional physicians from a variety of fields, and that’s exactly what the Pancreatic Cancer Program at Tampa General Hospital delivers.
Our highly specialized therapeutic endoscopists, pancreatobiliary surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, dieticians and psychologists work together to craft a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan for your specific situation, no matter the severity of your condition. In fact, our multidisciplinary approach is one reason why U.S. News & World Report recognized TGH as one of America's Best Hospitals in 2019-20 for Gastroenterology & GI Surgery.
Delivering Unparalleled Care Is Our Top Priority
TGH utilizes the latest and most advanced technology when diagnosing and treating pancreatic cancer, and we encourage integration to ensure that you receive the most complete care possible. Our center also participates in national clinical trials, so we are uniquely positioned to advance our pancreatic oncology knowledge continuously and provide you with the most state-of-the-art treatments available.
Our Treatment Options
Depending on the location and progression of your cancer, your treatment plan may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these. If surgery is deemed necessary, our highly experienced surgeons use classic and minimally invasive techniques, including robotic-assisted approaches that can help you enjoy a shorter recovery time. In fact, we are the first program in Southwest Florida to offer irreversible electroporation (IRE) for patients with unresectable tumors or extensive medical problems that make radical surgery impractical.
