If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, you will have many questions and decisions to make about your next steps. At Fox Chase Cancer Center, we have provided comprehensive approaches to cancer diagnosis, treatment and support for more than 100 years. Our pancreatic cancer specialists provide expert guidance so you can make informed decisions about your care and what is best for you and your family.
The Marvin and Concetta Greenberg Pancreatic Cancer Institute at Fox Chase, which opened in September 2017, is committed to achieving breakthroughs in early detection and treatment for pancreatic cancer. The Pancreatic Cancer Institute marks a record-breaking investment in the collaboration of our scientists, researchers and physicians. Our vision includes finding new ways to extend the lives of pancreatic cancer patients, to uncover the cancer earlier, and to someday find a cure.
Fox Chase Cancer Center also has been designated as a National Pancreas Foundation Center by the National Pancreas Foundation (NPF), a nonprofit organization that provides support for patients with pancreatic cancer and other pancreas-related diseases. Fox Chase is the only institution in the Philadelphia region to earn this distinction, and has been given a designation as both a clinical and academic center of excellence.
We draw upon the nationally renowned experience of our multidisciplinary medical team as we tailor a treatment plan that is unique to you. The gastrointestinal oncology team reviews new or challenging cases in depth to reach consensus on treatment options and strategies. Through this coordinated approach, we strive to offer the most thorough and personalized care, as well as access to innovative therapies and clinical trials.
Your dedicated team includes not only physicians, surgeons, researchers and nurses, but also nurse navigators, social workers, nutritionists, and other specialized staff to provide emotional support and coping strategies. At Fox Chase, we take enormous pride in providing world-class care for our patients with pancreatic cancer.
“What separates Fox Chase from other places is the atmosphere and the environment. When somebody walks into this center, they get a different sense right away. It’s much more close-knit, small, intimate, like a family. Our patient care starts immediately. That makes a huge difference for our patients in how they approach their disease and their treatment.”
