Pancreatic Surgery

Pancreatic surgery is a challenging procedure and is done when it the only option that can lead to a prolonged survival in pancreatic cancer and, or in some cases, perhaps a potential chance for cure. It is used for treatment of chronic pancreatitis and other less common benign diseases of the pancreas. Whipple’s pancreaticoduodenectomy is the operation most commonly performed surgery for tumors of the pancreatic head. It involves removal of part of the stomach, the whole of the duodenum, part of the small bowel, the head of the pancreas, the bile duct and the gallbladder, leaving behind the major blood vessels. The main goal of pancreatic surgery is the relief of intractable pain and decompression of adjacent organs.
