- Leading in the discovery of effective new methods to diagnose and treat pancreatic disease
- Educating patients, their families, Baylor College of Medicine trainees, other physicians, and the community about pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis
A benefit of treatment at an academic medical center like Baylor College of Medicine is the multidisciplinary team approach to clinical care that creates a personalized treatment plan based on your genetic and personal characteristics. This team stays with you throughout your journey.
