Resectable Pancreatic Cancer figureThe third part of surgical oncologist and pancreatic cancer surgeon Matthew Katz’s presentation on pancreatic cancer covered how it is determined whether a patient is a good candidate for the rigorous surgery required for localized pancreatic cancer.  This encompasses two important questions: is there a realistic potential to resected all of the cancer, and can a patient safely tolerate the surgery without the surgery causing prohibitive damage, either because of the cancer invading into critical structures or the challenge of the surgery itself? This is always a challenging decision and challenging surgery, and Dr. Katz discusses that important process.

Here are the video and audio versions of the podcast, along with the transcript and figures for them.
