Pancreatic cancer care at UCLA


Pancreatic Cancer Doctor and Patient

Care for pancreatic cancer patients at UCLA is provided by UCLA Health’s UCLA Agi Hirshberg Center for Pancreatic Diseases.

UCLA understands how frightening a pancreatic cancer diagnosis can be. Our integrated clinic helps patients get pancreatic disease treatment faster, shortening the time to surgery for eligible patients.

As a major research institution, UCLA offers pancreatic cancer treatment options and clinical trial opportunities not available at most facilities. Our surgeons operate on more than 100 patients each year, making our team one of the most experienced in Southern California.

Clinical trials for pancreatic cancer

Clinical trials are a vital step in discovering new treatments for cancer. UCLA doctors conduct clinical research to find new therapies for pancreatic tumors, and geneticists also work with precision medicine, which uses your DNA to help pinpoint the best treatment for you. By participating in a clinical trial, you will have access to the most innovative care.

Clinical trials for ovarian cancer are conducted through the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. If you are interested in finding out more about these studies, visit our list of open clinical trials.
