Pancreatic Disorders

Pancreatitis is the inflammation of the pancreas, the large gland behind the stomach and close to the first part of the small intestine. The pancreas secretes enzymes that join with bile, a liquid produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder to digest food.

Pancreatitis can be acute or chronic. Either form is serious and can lead to complications. In severe cases, bleeding, infection, and permanent tissue damage may occur.
