At the end of or shortly following your first visit, our team will discuss findings with you and make treatment recommendations that include short-term solutions and long-term strategies to help your child experience the best health possible and enjoy a good quality of life. Once your child becomes a patient at the Pancreas Care Center, these specialists will meet frequently to discuss how your child is progressing and to identify ways to enhance care. They will communicate with your child’s referring physician to summarize their findings and provide recommendations for your child’s care.
Whenever possible, we encourage families to receive treatment close to home rather than returning to Cincinnati Children’s for future visits. However, there may be times when returning to Cincinnati Children’s will be helpful (such as for certain procedures or specialized testing).
As patients near adulthood, our social workers help them make a smooth transition to an adult care provider.
