If you or a loved one has a pancreatic disorder, finding the right medical care- right away-is essential. Pancreatic disorders can be difficult to diagnose with conditions quickly getting worse before the right treatments begin. The doctors at MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute are experts in treating and managing pancreatic cancer and pancreas surgery, and our expert surgeons are highly specialized in treating all types of tumors and diseases of the pancreas.

The Pancreatic Surgery Program at MedStar Georgetown offers patients the full range of current therapies supplemented by the potential to participate in promising clinical trials that could change how acute and chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer are diagnosed and treated in the future. The surgeons performing pancreatic surgery here have among the highest volume, best technical experience and best survival outcomes in the country

Therapies include ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography), EUS (endoscopic ultrasound), genetic tumor and fluid analysis, laparoscopic as well as traditional resection surgery, and medical and oncologic therapies for pancreatic diseases.

Whipple Expertise

The surgeons performing pancreatic surgery here have among the highest volume, best technical experience and best survival outcomes in the country. In fact, studies suggest that hospitals performing a minimum of 10 pancreaticoduodenectomies (Whipple procedures) have better outcomes; Georgetown's numbers were much higher than this benchmark. When combined with all other treatment modalities available for pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis, we can offer your patients the most technologically advanced care possible.
