Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas caused when digestive enzymes begin to digest the pancreas itself. Our experienced surgeons can perform a variety of procedures to treat your pancreatitis.

Overview

Our approach will depend on the underlying cause of your pancreatitis. We may remove part of the pancreas or the calcium deposits (stones) that are blocking digestive fluids. In some cases, we may remove the entire pancreas, the gallbladder or the opening of the bile ducts, depending on your condition. Our goal will be to prevent a recurrence and preserve as much of your organs as possible.
