Description

Perhaps the greatest challenge for patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is the misunderstanding that there is no hope. This message may even come from their own doctor! National statistics show that as many as 40% of patients with early pancreatic cancer who are candidates for surgery and a chance for a cure never see a surgeon. In the right hands, surgery for pancreatic cancer has become very safe. UF Health has a team devoted to pancreatic surgery and our rates of use of minimally invasive surgery are among the top in the nation.

Speaker:  Steven J. Hughes, M.D., F.A.C.S.; UF Health Surgical Oncology
