Abstract

Many diseases of the biliary tract and pancreas preferentially effect the elderly. Recent innovations in the evaluation and management of these disorders have directly impacted the lives of many seniors. Improved outcomes of pancreatic surgery is a good example of a positive impact in quality of life, especially when these surgeries are performed in centers of excellence. Evaluation and treatment strategies are presented for complicated calculous biliary disease, pancreatic carcinoma, and pancreatic cystic neoplasms.
