Physicians in the gastrointestinal section have expertise in endoscopic retrograde pancreatography (ERCP) as well as endoscopic surveillance and biopsy and endoscopic ultrasound examination. The MRI center in radiology provides state of the art imaging which includes cholangiography, arteriography and venography. The Interventional Radiology section provides expertise in diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.

pancreasThe Surgery department has broad based expertise in both resective and nonresective surgical treatment for benign pancreatic disorders. This includes the management of necrotizing acute pancreatitis, management of complex pseudocyst disease, resective and bypass therapy for chronic pancreatitis.

Wherever appropriate, endoscopic radiographic or laparoscopic approaches may be utilized in addition to standard surgical therapy.
