Liver, Pancreas and Foregut Program

The surgeons in the  Program for Liver, Pancreas, and Foregut Tumors provide multidisciplinary surgical treatment of liver, pancreas, biliary tract, and upper gastrointestinal malignancies.  Patients are seen jointly in a common clinic by surgical oncologists and medical oncologists in order to streamline patient care and facilitate multi-specialty management.  The Program then meets weekly in a structured multidisciplinary conference to discuss all new patients and review their diagnoses, radiologic studies, and pathology.  All of our surgeons have completed advanced training in General Surgery and Surgical Oncology as well as in the multi-modality treatment of advanced GI cancers.  All are members of the Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute.

Our team brings together expertise from surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, diagnostic and interventional radiologists, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, pathologists, transplant surgeons, psychiatrists, palliative care physicians, patient care advocates, and nursing personnel to create a unified treatment plan tailored to each patient’s needs.  The team also has organized collaborations with Penn State basic, clinical, and translational scientists involved in cancer research studies.  This relationship enhances opportunities for translational research and clinical protocols in the treatment of liver, pancreas, and foregut malignancies.
