Pancreatic Cancer Clinics

Our surgeons, nurse practitioners, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and genetic counselors all have specialized training to detect and treat pancreatic diseases. They will work together to ensure patients receive the best care and most advanced screening and surgical options available.

  • Pancreatic Surgery Clinic

    UVA's Pancreatic Surgery Clinic is among the best in the country in terms of patient outcomes. For patients needing surgery, we offer the Whipple procedure, distal pancreatectomy, total pancreatectomy and minimally invasive surgical techniques.

    High-Risk Pancreatic Cancer Clinic

    Early detection of pancreatic cancer can mean a greater chance of survival. Through the High-Risk Pancreatic Cancer Clinic, UVA has made great strides in pancreatic cancer screening, establishing evidence-based screening protocols and developing a biomarker for pancreatic cancer.

    Pancreatic Cyst Clinic

    UVA's Pancreatic Cyst Clinic is one of the first programs in the country dedicated to the detection and treatment of pancreatic cysts. Though most of these cysts are benign, their presence can increase a patient’s risk for developing cancer.

Finding Cancer Sooner

Pancreatic cancer symptoms usually don't show up until the disease has spread to other parts of the body. By then, it's too late for most treatments. We're researching ways to catch pancreatic cancer early and give patients the best chance for survival.
