Expert Team

At Cedars-Sinai, persons with pancreatic or biliary conditions receive care from a team of experts.  They offer knowledge and experience with a variety of diagnostic methods and treatment options to best meet the needs of each patient.


Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
