Liver and Pancreas Cancer
The Legacy Liver and Pancreas Cancer Program specializes in treating cancers of the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and gallbladder. Our comprehensive services include the latest technologies and therapies, along with a range of support services. We combine an outstanding level of expertise with a profound compassion for healing.
Treatment of liver and pancreatic cancer -- especially metastatic liver cancer -- is rapidly evolving. Surgery is an option for more patients than ever before. Legacy Health also offers clinical trials and leading-edge, less-invasive interventional treatments, in addition to chemotherapy.
Legacy ranks among the nation's top cancer programs and has received multiple quality awards including the Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons' Commission (ACS) on Cancer. The ACS ranks Legacy's cancer program as one of the best in the nation.
