Most important is going to an oncologist who knows pancreatic cancer, since it is relatively rare and they dont see much of it. You really should go to a major pancreatic center for a second ...if not first...opinion. These include Johns Hopkins, MD Anderson in texas, Moffit in Tampa, USC or UCLA, Columbia Pres. in NY, and various others...there is a list on this board of doctors who specialize in it. And when it hopefully comes time for surgery, definitely go to a surgeon who does a LOT of whipple procedures, and they are listed on this board. Cant go wrong at MD Anderson and Hopkins for surgery, since they do the most in USA and they...and about a dozen other hospitals can even resect vein very often if tumor is against it, whereas most surgeons have to close the patient up and cancel whipple.
