At the Pancreatic Cancer Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, we understand how difficult it is to receive a diagnosis of pancreatic tumors. You may be anxious about your prognosis and confused by your treatment options — or you may be worried about how your cancer will affect loved ones.
That's why our experts offer more than clinical care. We also offer compassionate support for both patients and families dealing with pancreatic cancer.
Our program provides leading-edge treatment for all tumors of the pancreas.
Our clinical care is so effective because we take a collaborative approach to developing your treatment plan. Each week, our team gets together to make sure our patients have access to the latest treatments and the most promising clinical trials.
We use a combination of therapies to treat pancreatic tumors. Your care plan will be tailored to your cancer type as well as your health history and lifestyle. Common treatment options include:
Our patients also have access to novel therapies through participation in Tufts MC and national clinical trials.
When a family member has pancreatic cancer, it can be hard on everybody. The Pancreatic Cancer Program offers a wide array of support services to help you and your family during this difficult time.
While undergoing treatments, patients and families can stay together in the Neely House, conveniently located within Tufts MC. The Neely House is more than just a place to sleep. There, families have the opportunity to be together in a homey, comfortable environment and to connect with other families who also are coping with cancer.
Our program includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, gastroenterologists, nutritionists and other experts from across Tufts MC.
