The Augusto P. Sarmiento Cancer Institute Pancreatic Cancer Unit of The Medical City delivers a highly competent, multidisciplinary approach to the management and care of patients with pancreatic cancer.

Early detection by screening at-risk individuals, early diagnosis using CT-scan pancreas protocol endoscopic ultrasound without biopsy, definitive treatment, neo-and adjuvant treatment, surveillance, rehabilitation, and nutritional support are some of major services offered.

Management of pancreatic cancer is almost always multidisciplinary. Surgery is the best way to cure. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy are adjuvant treatment options. Among cases where surgical option is not the primary mode, procedures done by interventional radiologists and gastroenterologists such as stenting, decompression and other non-surgical procedures may be done.
