Our pancreatic cancer specialists give best-in-class pancreatic cancer care and our world-renowned researchers at Columbia University work in the lab and through clinical trials to bring the latest treatments to our patients. Your compassionate care team at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital will treat you with the warmth and respect you deserve.
Your Own Team of Pancreatic Cancer Experts
Pancreatic cancer diagnosis and treatment requires an entire team of specialists and support caregivers who are truly experts in their fields. We use a patient-centered clinical care team that includes gastroenterologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses, genetic counselors, and allied caregivers who work together to create your personalized care plan.
Your team will coordinate your care from treatment through survivorship, so you have less to worry about. You will also have access to resources and support beyond your doctors and nurses.
Cutting-Edge Research and Therapies
At Columbia Cancer, we believe that our discoveries here will end cancer everywhere.
Our team of researchers and physicians work to find new and better ways to treat, diagnose, and prevent pancreatic cancer.
We have a wide range of clinical trials that can bring you access to the newest therapies, such as targeted treatments and immunotherapies, before they are widely available.
Supporting You, From Diagnosis to Survivorship
Because we treat the whole person, not just the cancer, we have created Patient Support Services that provide care and support outside of traditional medical care. You will have access to alternative treatments like acupuncture, resources for stress management, yoga therapy, spiritual support, patient support groups, and more.
