About Whipple surgery

Whipple surgery or pancreaticoduodenectomy is a surgery that removes tumors in the pancreas. For this, the surgeon resects the pancreas head, the first part of the small intestine, the gallbladder and the bile duct. After the resection he then reconnects the remaining pancreas and digestive organs.
 
Not all patients are eligible for whipple surgery. First, the tumors should not be spread to other organs. Second, the tumor should only be in the head of the pancreas. Approximately 15-20% of patients with pancreatic cancer are eligible for this surgery. 

Types of Whipple surgery

There are 3 types of Whipple surgery: open, laparoscopic and robotic. The open surgery is the most common one and entails a standard incision in the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery means that the surgeon inserts special instruments with a camera into the abdomen to perform the procedure. It is minimally invasive. Similarly, the robotic surgery means that a mechanic device controlled by the surgeon through a control panel performs the procedure. 
 
The surgery is longer than other general surgery procedures, often between 4 and 12 hours. Likewise, the risks are higher and should be comprehensively discussed beforehand.
