Rush Excellence in Pancreatic Cancer Care

  • Nationally ranked cancer care: U.S. News & World Report has ranked Rush University Medical Center among the best in the nation for cancer care.
  • Designated center of excellence: When you come to Rush for pancreatic cancer care, your quality of life is our top priority — focusing care on your mind, body and spirit. This approach led Rush University Medical Center to be designated as a National Pancreas Foundation Center of Excellence. This designation recognizes Rush's multidisciplinary treatment of pancreatic cancer, treating you with a focus on best outcomes and improved quality of life. Rush is the first health system in Illinois to earn this designation.
  • Advanced diagnostics: Getting a quick, accurate diagnosis is crucial to your pancreatic cancer care. Our expert team specializes in staging studies, including axial imaging and diagnostic modalities including endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) — all of which can diagnose pancreatic cancer and guide stage-appropriate treatments for your unique needs.
  • Surgical expertise: Often, surgery is your best option for long-term survival for pancreatic cancer. Our surgical oncologists are among the most experienced in the nation, performing complex pancreas surgery including robotic surgery.
  • Clinical trials: As one of the leading academic health systems in the country, Rush clinicians are also researchers who are looking at new ways to effectively treat pancreatic cancer. That means you may have access to clinical trials and treatments that are not widely available.
