Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer at Clínic

Reading time: 1 min

Hospital Clínic has a multidisciplinary team of medical staff, as well as clinical and basic researchers who are experts in pancreatic pathology. This work group emerged from the need to provide the most advanced therapeutic options for a type of tumour with a typically poor prognosis. The group includes medical staff specialising in surgery, gastroenterology, medical oncology and radiotherapy, pathology and radiology.

It offers the most advanced surgical techniques to treat this type of tumour, including minimally invasive laparoscopic approaches. This multidisciplinary approach guarantees individualised discussion and evaluation of each case, so as to offer the therapeutic strategy best adapted to each individual patient's needs.

Hospital Clínic is currently a reference centre for patients from other hospitals (Plató, Sagrat Cor, Mollet, Granollers and Vic).

Nowadays, pre-surgical (neoadjuvant) or post-surgical (adjuvant) oncological treatment, or when the disease has spread, is done on an individual basis for each patient, and a comprehensive assessment is performed by advanced practice nurses. Criteria related to complexity, frailty and nutritional status are assessed in order to establish an individualised therapeutic plan together with the medical team.
