Whipple surgery, medically termed as Pancreatoduodenectomy, is a surgical procedure carried out to remove pancreatic cancer. This is also conducted to remove pancreatic lesions or cysts from the bile duct and duodenum(the beginning of small intestine).
Pancreas is an essential organ of human body that is closely integrated with other organs,namely; gall bladder, small intestine and some part of stomach. Therefore, this process requires removal of some part of these related organs, along with the head of pancreas. This is true even when no significant cancerous growth is seen in these organs.We have Whipple Surgery price information in 7 cities.

However, unfortunately, this treatment can be carried out in only those conditions, where cancer growth is restricted to the head of the pancreas and has not spread to nearby blood vessels. That is why the pancreatic cancer survival ratios are quite less ranging from 15 - 20 percent of total patients who get cured through this surgical treatment. Sometimes very skilled surgeons may perform this surgery in cases where cancerous growth has extended to the body or tail of pancreas.
Another very popular method of carrying out this treatment is via Laproscopic Surgery, also known as Minimal invasive surgery. This process requires very small incisions that prevent blood loss and reduce post operation pain. This advanced technique of surgery is being adopted by surgeons in all types of operations and is very common for Pancreatic cancer operations.
