Pancreas Center

The UCSF Pancreas Center treats patients with a wide range of pancreatic disorders from cancer and benign tumors to pancreatitis. Our team includes specialists in anesthesia, gastroenterology, neurology, nursing, psychology and surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of disease and the management of pain. Our patients also have the opportunity to participate in research, called clinical trials, to test the latest experimental therapies.

The center's mission is to advance the care of patients with pancreatic diseases through prevention, early detection, individual treatment and research. Our clinical practice is located in the Gastrointestinal Surgery and Oncology Clinic at Mission Bay. The center was founded in July 2012 by Dr. Margaret Tempero, who heads the Pancreas Center and the Pancreas Cancer Program.

Pancreas Center experts also treat patients in the Gastrointestinal Surgery Clinic at Parnassus.

You'll need a referral from your primary care provider or specialist to make an appointment. Once you have the referral, please call the number below.
