MUSC PANCREAS Surgery program OF EXCELLENCE

Our Procedures

The experts at MUSC have teamed up to provide the full range of possible procedures for patients who have pancreatic cancer or pancreatitis. In some cases, an individual's best option may be complete removal of the pancreas (pancreatectomy), a complicated procedure in which our surgeons are highly experienced. In addition, MUSC is one of the few centers in the world that can preserve the pancreas' islet cells and transplant them to the patient's liver (islet autotransplantation) so they can continue to produce insulin for the body and prevent the onset of brittle diabetes.
