Dr. Malcolm Billimoria tackles Pancreatic Cancer
Surgeon tackles ‘inoperable’ pancreatic cancer
Dr. Malcolm Bilimoria, has performed the pancreatic cancer surgery more than 700 times, never losing a patient during surgery. More than two dozen of his Whipple patients are still alive more than five years later, and are considered cured.
Bilimoria learned his craft at Northwestern University and the Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, then worked at Evanston Hospital, before being lured to Northwest Community Hospital last year for the opening of its Illinois Center for Pancreatic and Hepatobiliary Disease, which specializes in treating the pancreas, liver and bile ducts.
