- Laparoscopic pancreatectomy
- Laparoscopic splenectomy
- Sphincter-sparing surgery for low cancers
- Laparoscopic gastrectomy
Cancer patients are evaluated for the newest treatment options available through the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, including cancer vaccine trials, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy to insure the highest rate of success.
Our surgeons also are skilled in surgically treating other gastrointestinal diseases with emphasis on inflammatory bowel disease.
