Paige’s family initially sought treatment at another hospital, but Paige’s blood sugar wouldn’t stay in the safe range. Her parents brought her to CHOP. There, Surgeon-in-Chief N. Scott Adzick was able to remove only the part of her pancreas that was making too much insulin, preserving the rest. Dr. Adzick has performed more pancreatectomies than any other surgeon — more than 500 — and Paige was cured of the disease.
