My mom was just diagnosed with distal bile duct cancer. They said she would need some of her pancreas, bile duct and small intestine removed. Wondering if you have any experience with surgeons in the Portland area? We would also look at Seattle too if you know of any there that have successfully done a lot of them. We are trying to find out how many of these surgeries were performed by surgeions/hospitals, but find it hard to get this info.
