Outsmarting Cancer One Patient at A Time.
Pancreatic Cancer Care at Allegheny Health Network
Pancreatic cancer affects the main organ in the body – the pancreas - that’s responsible for helping to digest food. And while rare – it accounts for only 3% of all cancers and affects about 53,000 men and women age 40 and older each year – pancreatic cancer is also deadly for nearly 41,000 of those diagnosed.
But there’s hope. In fact, doctors at the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute are successfully outsmarting pancreatic cancer with some of the most innovative clinical trials and treatments, including Nanoknife Irreversible Electroporation (IRE). We’re also the only health system in the Pittsburgh region to currently offer this non-invasive surgical procedure.
