What Sets Us Apart

NYU Langone’s team of gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, and intensive care specialists at the Pancreatitis Program offer expert diagnosis and treatment for people with pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas that leads to pain, tissue damage, and digestive problems. This serious—and sometimes life-threatening—condition can progress in unpredictable ways and requires specialized care by an experienced team.

Dr. Mark Pochapin Talks to a Patient

NYU Langone’s intensive care unit includes specialists, such as pancreatic surgeons, for those who require critical care. For people with chronic pancreatitis, our doctors can create a long-term treatment and monitoring plan that minimizes your symptoms and the risk of complications.

Treatment at NYU Langone

For acute episodes of pancreatitis, immediate medical treatment in a hospital is needed. For chronic pancreatitis, our doctors may recommend lifestyle modifications, pancreatic enzyme supplementation, and sometimes endoscopic therapies or surgery.
