When patients require surgery to address pancreatic disease
symptoms, Stanford surgeons carefully assess the patient's situation
to determine which surgical approach will be the most effective and
cause the patient the least amount of discomfort and recovery time.
We have deep expertise in the entire spectrum of pancreatic surgery
for benign and malignant disease within the Department of Surgery at
Stanford University. Stanford is consistently among the top five
medical centers in California with respect to the volume of pancreas
operations performed annually.
