Working Group of Patients after Pancreatectomy (AdP)

Through its work of many years, the AdP gives affected patients the opportunity of acquiring greater knowledge about the various vital problems and their treatment before and after pancreatic surgery. The AdP is supported in its work first and foremost by its Scientific Advisory Board, on which physicians, psychotherapists, dieticians and social workers work together and combine their knowledge and experience to the benefit of the patients.
