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.
