Pancreatic Cancer Care at UVA Health

Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer can be overwhelming. But rest assured that UVA Health is here for you in this moment. We excel in screening for and monitoring people with key risk factors for pancreatic cancer. Plus, we have high-volume experience with Whipple surgery — the only surgery that can cure pancreatic cancer.

Ours was Virginia's sole program to be named a National Pancreas Foundation Center of Excellence for Pancreatic Cancer in 2022. This honor recognizes our emphasis on "treating the 'whole patient' with a focus on the best possible outcomes and improved quality of life."

In addition, UVA Health is a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center. This title means we're leaders in cancer research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. We're the only such center in Virginia — and one of just 52 in the country.

For expert, compassionate pancreatic cancer care, you can count on UVA Health. Our doctors and scientists are leaders in cancer care who will work together to develop a treatment plan personalized just for you. We're prepared for the moment you need us most.
