The expert care team at the Ohio State Pancreas Clinic can evaluate and manage patients with pancreatic disorders.

At Ohio State, we have gathered a team of clinicians and endoscopy specialists dedicated to helping patients with pancreatic diseases. Endoscopy involves nonsurgical procedures, which enable viewing of the internal portions of the digestive tract via a flexible tube and various treatments.

The GHN Pancreas Clinic at Ohio State is part of the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (GHN) within Ohio State’s nationally recognized Department of Internal Medicine.

Our Pancreas Clinic staff provide expert care in many areas, including:

  • Acute and chronic pancreatitis
  • Pancreatic cysts
  • Treatment for complications of pancreatic diseases, including exocrine pancreatic insufficiency and pancreatic duct stones
  • Medical evaluation for total pancreatectomy (removal of the pancreas) and autologous islet cell transplant (TPIAT - implantation of the patient’s own pancreatic islet cells)
  • Pancreatic cancer
      • A multi-specialty clinic for those with known or suspected pancreatic cancer
      • Evaluation and monitoring for those whose family history indicates an elevated risk for developing pancreatic cancer
