Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month

As a center of excellence in pancreatic surgery and pancreatic cancer, we are proud to continue the fight against this disease.

This month is a great chance to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer. Despite being a very difficult to treat cancer, centers of excellence like the Association of South Bay Surgeons are making great progress. Using the latest CT scans to find smaller tumors, 3D mapping techniques to plan virtual surgeries and molecular genetics to plan personalized therapy are all part of OUR standard of care. We continue to use these advances to battle this problem and treat each person as a member of our family. 

Live strong, Fight on!
