I just found out that my husband has Pancreatitis, he was in the hospital for 4 days, however they didn't refer him to any specialist, they just said to follow up with his primary physician. I know that there has to be a Doctor that specializes in this, does anyone know?

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine whereby the digestive system and its disorders are studied.
You are looking for a Dr who specializes is a endocrineolgy. They specializes in diseases of the glands which is what he pancreas is one of. They also specialize in Diabetic care, which is caused by problems in the pancreas. Hope this helps you out.
sporter669, I looked up the disease and it would be a Gastrointestinal specialist who would handle pancreatic issues.
I hope your husband is on his way to a good recovery!
