Welcome to The Pancreas Health Program

john-allendorf Pancreatic cancer is a complex disease that requires expert care from multiple providers spanning several disciplines. Our program is mission driven, goal oriented, disease based and patient focused. We have assembled a team of outstanding practitioners dedicated to providing comprehensive care to patients with pancreatic cancer and the precursors of the disease. Within our prevention program, we screen high risk individuals with the goal of preventing the development of malignancy. For those patients who come to us with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, we offer the best possible care at every stage of disease. Patents with operable tumors will undergo surgery using established and innovative techniques followed by state of the art chemotherapy and radiotherapy using the best available technology and protocols. For patients with �inoperable� pancreatic cancer, we have an aggressive protocol that will ultimately lead to surgical removal of the tumor in a majority of the patients. All through this process, our patients are supported socially, nutritionally, and emotionally by our dedicated staff.

Here at our program we welcome the opportunity to help you and your family with the management of this challenging disease.

John D. Allendorf, MD, FACS
