When are we operational?


We are available from Monday to Friday, from 8:00 to 18:00.

We are an excellence centre


Therapeutic innovation and assistance improvement pass through the progress of knowledge. Our group, supervised by Professor Paolo Pederzoli, actively collaborates on a clinical and scientific basis with Istituto del Pancreas della Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria Integrata di Verona (A.O.U.I.) directed by Professor Claudio Bassi; is partner of Comprehensive Cancer Network, an oncological project on regional basis directed by Professor Giampaolo Tortora and participates to Centro di Ricerca Arc-Net directed by Professor Aldo Scarpa within the Genome Project on pancreatic cancer ofInternational Genoma Consortium, where our Head of Department, Doctor Giovanni Butturini, is part of the board. Data deriving from these experiences offers new and encouraging perspectives in the treatment of neoplasms considered nearly incurable. Targeted and effective cures, coming from genetic research, give new hope to patients with pancreatic cancer. Recently a new program for the treatment of patients with unresectable cancer was created: we offer the possibility of a multidisciplinary approach with specialistic evaluation during a brief hospitalization. Patients are followed by their medic, one of the specialists of our team. During the hospitalization diagnosis is defined through biopsy and there are consultations with specialists in pain therapy, nutrition and oncologic psychology. At the discharge direct contacts are made with oncologists, who will follow the patient for the therapies. A dedicated nurse will follow the patient: we are confident we can guarantee a better quality of life and success of the therapies, with the possibility of surgery at a later time.


Our unit contributes in the formation of young surgeons, through the establishment of a PANCREATIC SURGERY FELLOWSHIP. More information available at this link:
