Pancreatitis is the redness and swelling (inflammation) of the pancreas. This happens when digestive juices or enzymes attack the pancreas.
In many cases, Pancreatitis can be relieved through diet and lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, avoiding overeating, losing weight and decreasing alcohol intake. We'll help decide which — from diet modification and medication therapy to surgery — is best for you.

- Hospitalization, rest with IV fluids
Clinical Trials (when appropriate)
