Cleveland Clinic GI department establishes pancreatic care center

Cleveland Clinic's Weston (Fla.) department of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition — part of its digestive disease center — has established a center for pancreatic care, according to a March 9 report from South Florida Hospital News.

The center will employ a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including gastroenterologists, pancreatic surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, nutritionists and genetic counselors who will create personalized care plans for pancreatic care patients. 

It will offer services including pancreatic cancer screening, endoscopy and radiology, diagnostic imaging, minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery.

Mayank Roy, MD, will serve as the center's surgical director. Conrad Simpfendorfer, MD, is the center's lead surgeon. Dr. Simpfendorfer has been with the clinic since 2006, specializing in liver and pancreatic surgery.
