Pancreas Care Center

The Cincinnati Children’s Pancreas Care Center is one of the only centers in the United States that is dedicated to caring for children with pancreatic diseases. Our multidisciplinary team treats patients from around the world, taking a centralized approach to provide diagnosis and effective therapies, including pain management.

In addition, Cincinnati Children’s is one of a few hospitals in the country offering total pancreatectomy and islet auto-transplantation (TPIAT) for children with debilitating chronic pancreatitis.

Patients come to the center from across the country and around the world to receive expert diagnosis and advanced care for acute, recurrent and chronic pancreatitis, as well as pancreatic tumors, pancreatic insufficiency and pancreatic birth defects.

The center works closely with the National Pancreas Foundation and is part of the #3 ranked GI Division in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
