Pancreatic and Biliary Tract Diseases and Conditions
Conditions affecting the pancreas and biliary tract can be life threatening and often difficult to diagnose. At Johns Hopkins, our gastroenterologists listen carefully to your symptoms, asking the right questions and ordering the appropriate tests to accurately diagnose your condition. Once the diagnosis has been determined, our doctors base your treatment plan on years of research and experience with other patients.

- Acute Pancreatitis
- Bile Duct Cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma)
- Chronic Pancreatitis
- Gallstone Disease
- Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD)
Furthering Treatment Through Clinical Research
The dedication to clinical research at Johns Hopkins is a critical reason our Gastroenterology and Hepatology Division is so well respected. Understanding the basic science behind these diseases, as well as more effective diagnostic options, means that we can design accurate treatment plans that cure our patients and help them lead normal, active, healthy lifestyles.
