What is a multidisciplinary clinic?

As treatments for pancreatic and biliary cancer evolve, fewer patients undergo single-modality therapy. Instead, more and more patients are being treated with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy that involves the expert opinions of specialists in those treatments.

This “multidisciplinary approach,” a long-established protocol here at University of Colorado Hospital in metro Denver, provides patients with the most current, effective, and evidence-based treatments in a single-day appointment, as well as the opportunity to meet with the specialists who collaborate in his or her care. These specialists might include:

  • Surgeons
  • Medical oncologists
  • Radiation oncologists
  • Gastroenterologists
  • Anesthesiologists (for pain management)
  • Pathologists
  • Radiologists
  • Dieticians
  • Social workers
  • Research coordinators

Learn the advantages of a multidisciplinary clinic

We offer advanced diagnostic and interventional endoscopic treatments, traditional and laparoscopic Whipple and Distal procedures, as well as chemotherapy & radiotherapy regimens.

Once you are referred to our clinic, specialists review your laboratory and radiologic tests – and order new tests, if indicated. After you provide a thorough history and get a physical examination, your case is presented to the multidisciplinary team, who design an individualized plan of care that they discuss with you.

A pancreatic cancer patient's story

“We knew we were in the right place.”

An MRI revealed the source of Dr. Wayne Munson’s “abdominal discomfort” – a pancreatic tumor. He and his family knew such a diagnosis required a specialist’s attention. As Wayne’s wife Barbara recounts: “What comfort it was, meeting the team and Dr. Schulick and in very short order we knew we were in the right place.”
