Pancreas Disease Program

The Yale Pancreas Disease Program was officially formed in 2013 to address the clinical issues and concerns faced by patients and their families with pancreatic disease, such as pancreatic cancer, pancreatic cysts, and pancreatitis. This multidisciplinary integrative program focuses on 3 components: Patient Care, Research, and Patient Education.

Patient Care

The key to effective management of your pancreatic disease is coordinated care among specially trained physicians, nurses, and advanced practice nurses experienced in these disease. Our program offers clinical expertise in adult advanced endoscopic procedures, pancreatic surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology pathology, radiology and cancer genetics. Multidisciplinary care through combined clinic and patient conferences is a central feature of the Yale Pancreas Disease Program.

Research

The Yale Pancreas Disease Program offers ground breaking and novel clinical and translational research in the areas of: pancreatic cancer early diagnosis, advanced pancreatic endoscopic therapy and pancreatic cancer treatment. We aim to improve clinical therapy and patient outcomes while improving our understanding of both benign and malignant pancreatic diseases.

Patient Education

The Yale Pancreas Disease Program aims to improve patient care through educating individuals and their families about the pancreas and pancreas disease. We believe that understanding about the pancreatic disease, and related procedures and treatments, empowers patients and family members to take an active role in their health care decisions and an improved quality of life.
