PANCREATIC CANCER RESOURCES

University of Colorado Cancer Center – Multidisciplinary Clinic Approach Pancreas
and Biliary Cancer Multidisciplinary Clinic

As research for the treatment of pancreas cancer develops, fewer patients are being treated with single-modality therapy. Instead, most patients are being treated with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. This often makes navigating the healthcare system difficult and overwhelming. In a traditional medical environment, patients are often seen by different specialists over the course of several weeks. The Pancreas and Biliary Multidisciplinary Clinic at the CU Cancer Center is designed so that patients are seen by our team of specialists over one day with the goal of having a treatment plan by the end of the visit. This multidisciplinary approach to care provides patients with the most up-to-date and evidence-based treatment to provide the best care for the highest chance of success and cure of disease.
