Pancreatic cancer is responsible for the third most cancer deaths in the United States, and the incidence of hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) cancers—or cancers of the liver, pancreas, and biliary tract—is steadily increasing. Addressing the need for a comprehensive resource to guide cancer care providers in the diagnosis and treatment of these challenging and complex diseases, Dr. Cataldo Doria, director of Capital Health Cancer Center and a hepato-pancreato-biliary surgeon and Dr. Jason Rogart, director of Interventional Gastroenterology and Therapeutic Endoscopy at Capital Health, present “Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Malignancies: Diagnosis and Treatment in the 21st Century.” Edited by Drs. Doria and Rogart and published by Springer, a leading international publisher in medical textbooks, the book offers expert summaries of current knowledge of HPB cancers from leaders in their respective fields.
“Patients with hepato-pancreato-biliary malignancies face enormous challenges that require a multidisciplinary team of providers to manage their care from diagnosis through treatment,” said Dr. Cataldo Doria. “We’re excited to bring the collective experience of many talented clinicians to national and international audiences and help cancer care providers near and far develop treatment plans that give their patients the best possible outcomes.”
“Up until now, there have been few comprehensive resources available in the field of hepato-pancreato-biliary cancers to help providers raise their level of practical and clinical care,” said Dr. Rogart. “The extraordinary material we’ve assembled showcases the latest diagnostic and therapeutic tools that are available in a succinct and practical manner. It is our hope that the book will become an invaluable clinical resource for all members of the multidisciplinary teams who provide care for patients with HPB malignancies.”
