Pancreatic cancer surgery

There are several different types of cancer that can develop in the pancreas, a small organ located behind the stomach. Early stage pancreatic cancer has no symptoms so the disease is most often detected in the advanced stages.

Our surgical oncologists in Naperville and Elmhurst specialize in pancreatic cancer surgeries, including:

  • Whipple procedure
  • Distal pancreatectomy
  • Total pancreatectomy

Our surgical oncology team specializes in pancreatic cancer surgery.
