Peter J. Allen, MD, FACS

Profile:

Dr. Allen is an Attending Surgeon in the Hepatopancreatobiliary Service, the Vice Chair of Surgical Services in the Department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He is Associate Director for Clinical Programs in the David M. Rubenstein Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research and the Murray F. Brennan Chair in Surgery. He currently leads the pancreatic research efforts within the Department of Surgery. One of the primary goals of this program is to develop more accurate nonsurgical methods for diagnosing pancreatic cysts. These methods should help guide doctors in deciding which patients should have an operation and which can effectively be monitored through imaging. In addition, he currently leads and participates in clinical trials that evaluate novel methods of diagnosing and treating pancreatic cancer, as well as methods for decreasing the risks of surgery. Patients participating in these trials are able to receive these cutting-edge therapies before they are accessible nationally.
