The Whipple Surgical Procedure offers hope to many people suffering from Pancreatic Cancer. Pancreatic cancers give no specific or pronounced symptoms that can be easily detected and hence are very difficult to detect. So by the time this cancer is detected, most patients are at an advanced stage of this fatal health condition. Due to this it has been seen that only 5% of patients with this ailment manage to survive for a few years post diagnosis.

However, a successful Whipple surgery can extend this survival timeline and rate and serve as a potential cure for Pancreatic Cancer.

Laproscopic Surgery is another very popular method of carrying out this treatment. This procedure is also called as Minimal Invasive Surgery. This surgery involves very small incisions that prevent blood loss and reduce post operation pain. This advanced surgery technique has been adopted by surgeons in all types of operations and is a very common procedure for Pancreatic cancer cases.

The medical terminology for the Whipple surgery is Pancreatoduodenectomy. This is a complex surgical procedure carried out to remove pancreatic cancer. The Whipple procedure is also conducted to remove pancreatic lesions or cysts from the bile duct and duodenum (the beginning of small intestine).

Pancreas is a gland located deep in the belly or abdomen and is an essential organ of the human body. The gland is closely integrated with other organs, namely - gall bladder, small intestine and some part of the stomach. Therefore, this surgical process requires removal of some part of these related organs as well, along with the head of pancreas. Such removal occurs or is required even when there is no significant cancerous growth in these organs.
