While rare, pancreatic cancer is the third-leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. Pancreatic cancer can be difficult to detect and is frequently diagnosed in later stages. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, our team has the experience and knowledge to deliver the most comprehensive care in the region.

Nebraska Medicine has been nationally recognized as a Center of Excellence by the National Pancreas Foundation for outstanding clinical care and scientific innovation — the only pancreatic cancer center within a 350-mile radius to have earned this combined designation.

What to expect

Our pancreatic cancer experts work closely with specialists throughout Nebraska Medicine to determine the best course of treatment for you. At your first appointment, you’ll receive a comprehensive evaluation and meet the specialists who will take part in your care.

This multidisciplinary team may include gastroenterologists, pancreas surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and interventional radiologists, along with patient-focused programs such as a pain management service, nutritional guidance, genetic counseling, psychosocial support and more.

Depending on the type of cancer, treatment options could include:

  • Drugs (chemotherapy)
  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy

The pancreatic cancer center team works together with a shared goal: to create an effective, targeted treatment plan that focuses on your cancer therapies, physical symptoms and your emotional well-being.
