Jordan M. Winter, MD is a nationally recognized, board-certified surgeon with a special interest in the medical and surgical management of pancreatic and related cancers, pancreatic cysts, chronic pancreatitis, bile duct strictures, biliary, gastric and liver cancers and abdominal tumors.

In addition to being a highly skilled clinician, Dr. Winter is a leader in translational and basic research. As director of the Winter Lab, which is funded by the American Cancer Society and the NIH, he is at the forefront of investigational efforts to find alternative treatments for pancreatic cancer. The lab seeks to understand how pancreatic cancer cells survive in their microenvironment and identify their metabolic weaknesses to ultimately discover new and effective therapies. A clinical study will soon be underway to study the use of a novel metabolic inhibitor.

With 18 years of experience, Dr. Winter has made significant contributions to his field of study and has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and a dozen book chapters, many of which focus on pancreatic cancer. He excels in his role as educator and is committed to helping his colleagues reach their professional goals.

Dr. Winter uses a unique blend of science and compassion in his approach to health care and has dedicated his career to helping patients who face the most challenging cancers. With two office locations in Cleveland and Beachwood, patients across the region have convenient access to his expertise. He also consults with people across the country through UH’s unique Telehealth program.

Dr. Winter has an impressive educational background. He received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University in 1997 and his medical degree from Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, graduating in 2001. After completing a general surgery residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Dr. Winter further honed his expertise at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where he completed a two-year fellowship in surgical oncology.

This visit was probably the best experience I have had with a Dr's office. Dr. Winter and his team are kind, courteous, informative, knowledgeable, and empathetic. Being a patient of a different provider, I sought out Dr. Winter for a specific health issue and am so very glad I did. He is truly an expert in his field, who genuinely cares about his patients and their needs. Although there is fear and uncertainty about my health and diagnosis, I feel as comfortable as possible in Dr. Winter's care and will likely change to UH as my full-time health care provider. I have already spoken highly of, and recommended Dr. Winter and UH to several people. The level of care and thoroughness so far has been a blessing to myself and my family and is unmatched at any other care provider in the area.

I was in for an opinion about CT and MRI images of my pancreas. Unfortunately they did not arrive in enough time for Dr. Winter to review them carefully. However, Dr. Winter discussed my medical issue with me and reassured me he would let me know what the images indicated. [...]

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
