Diseases of the pancreas have shown an increasing trend in the past few years. The factors which contribute to this are both genetic and environmental in nature. The Pancreas Clinic at SIGMA Gastrocare is devoted to a multidisciplinary approach in managing diseases of the pancreas which include acute and chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic tumours.
Consultations are provided by a leading team of medical and surgical gastroenterologists who have a special interest in pancreatic disorders. This team is aptly supported by radiologists, pathologists and a nutrition team.
Most of our consultants are actively involved in pancreatic disease research and have publications in leading medical journals.
Common conditions which are seen in the pancreas clinic are:
- Acute pancreatitis
- Pancreatic cancers
- Chronic Pancreatitis
- Neuroendocrine tumours of the pancreas
- Cystic tumours of the pancreas
