Pancreatic Surgery - The "Whipple"
The "Whipple" is perhaps the most famous/infamous pancreatic operation. This complex operation involves removal of the head of the pancreas, duodenum (first portion of the small bowel), bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes a small portion of the stomach. The pancreas, stomach, and bile ducts are reattached to the bowel to allow normal digestion of food following recovery. Stanford surgeons have considerable expertise in performing this operation. After the Whipple, our patients stay a median of only 8 days in the Stanford hospital and have very low rates of complications similar to other very high volume university medical centers.
