Care Philosophy
Dr. Marco Del Chiaro is a surgical oncologist with 15 years of experience in the treatment of pancreatic diseases. He is internationally recognized as a leader in the surgical treatment of borderline resectable\locally advanced pancreatic cancer, as well as in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreas lesions. Dr. Del Chiaro's unique approach, combined with multimodal chemoradiotherapy, allows more surgical options for locally advanced pancreatic cancer patients. He is active in academic research, with more than 130 peer reviewed papers, and is a member of several scientific journals’ editorial boards. Dr. Del Chiaro's mission is to improve pancreatic cancer survival through both prevention and aggressive treatment of the advanced tumors and to create a multimodal personalized treatment for each patient.
