Bringing together the best minds in the world to advance pancreatic cancer research for early detection.
A new clinical trial is testing the effectiveness of using precise, higher dose MRI-guided radiation therapy to treat pancreatic cancer.
Advanced pancreatic cancer treatment options
Our surgical team led development of technology that removes traces of cancer on the edges of a tumor, stretching survival for patients with locally-advanced disease. And we are on the forefront of vaccine research for the most advanced cases of pancreatic cancer.
We were the first in Michigan to use a soft tissue ablation called electroporation, also known as NanoKnife, to treat inoperable pancreatic tumors that may lie too close to vital blood vessels or ducts in the pancreas to safely perform traditional surgery.
We were also the first in the world to use cutting-edge radiation technology, called ViewRay, which allows for more precise and accurate delivery of radiation to the tumor.
