Pancreas and Liver Cancer: Marvin Leventer
Diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer, Marvin Leventer underwent a Whipple procedure and partial hepatectomy.
After seeing several specialists, Marvin Leventer was diagnosed by Johns Hopkins oncologist Tim Pawlik, M.D. with a neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas that had spread to his liver. He underwent two surgeries: the first to remove the entire diseased right side of his liver and the second to remove all residual disease in his left liver and also perform a Whipple procedure on his pancreas. Leventer made a full recovery and is now running marathons and completing Ironman competitions.
