The Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Program at Johns Hopkins is built around our team of globally recognized liver and pancreas surgeons. Working with other specialists, our team provides consistent and seamless treatment for patients with malignancies and diseases in the pancreas, liver, gallbladder and bile duct.

Why choose Johns Hopkins?
Johns Hopkins is one of the few centers in the country that performs liver and pancreas operations with both the traditional open method and minimally invasive operations, including robotic and laparoscopic procedures. Our treatments, which utilize a minimally invasive approach, include the Whipple procedure, auto islet surgery, bile duct resections, and liver resections.
Johns Hopkins performs more pancreas surgeries than any other institution in the United States. Each year, our surgeons perform more than 500 pancreatectomies, including approximately 350 Whipple procedures.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
Our experienced surgeons perform advanced surgical techniques for liver and pancreas operations using minimally-invasive procedures.
Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer
Johns Hopkins is one of the few hospitals that specializes in diagnosing and treating unresectable pancreatic cancer. Our team will determine if apparent unresectable tumors may be resectable.
Pancreatic Cancer | Patty's Story
For Montana-resident Patricia “Patty” Mild, the year of 2015 was a medical and emotional roller coaster. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2015 and sought a second opinion at Johns Hopkins after undergoing a failed operation to remove the tumor closer to home. A consultation with Johns Hopkins surgical oncologist Christopher Wolfgang and an aggressive treatment plan formulated by the pancreatic cancer clinical team gave her new hope of a life free from pancreatic cancer.
