Pancreatic cancer treatment involves surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical gastroenterologists, and dieticians. It is important for patients to be treated at specialized centres that have all of these resources available. Presently, surgery offers the best chance for a cure and long-term management of pancreatic cancer. While there have been significant improvements in pancreatic operations, these procedures remain complex. Because of this, it is important to choose a surgeon and a facility that has extensive experience with pancreatic operations, often referred to as a “high-volume centres”. The experience level of the surgeon is also critical. Studies have shown that patients who undergo pancreatic surgery at a high-volume centre experience fewer operative complications and experience better outcomes.
