The Center for Advanced Liver & Pancreatic Care
The Center for Cancer Care at Sherman Health is proud to offer the Center for Advanced Liver & Pancreatic Care. Led by renowned Pancreatic and Liver Surgeon John Brems, MD, FACS, the Center offers progressive procedures and techniques to treat a broad range of liver, bile duct, and pancreatic cancers and diseases. Named to “America’s Top Doctors” and Chicago magazine’s Top Doctors list for 12 consecutive years, Dr. Brems is a noted expert in the treatment of liver and pancreatic diseases. Dr. Brems has performed over 800 liver transplants and over 1,000 liver resections.
Today, many liver, bile duct and pancreatic cancers and diseases are increasingly treatable, but they require specialized expertise and care.
