Whipple Procedure for Pancreatic and Related Cancers and Pancreatitis

Emory surgeons are leading the way towards perfecting the Whipple procedure. This major surgical operation is performed to treat cancers of the head of the pancreas, the distal bile duct and the duodenum, as well as pancreatitis.

Robotic Distal Pancreatectomy

In addition to open and laparoscopic distal pancreatectomies, Emory also offers a robotic approach, which provides a level of precision that may increase the chances of saving the patient’s spleen.

Enucleation of Small Neuroendocrine Tumors

Enucleation is a surgical process during which only the tumor cells are removed, leaving the pancreas entirely intact. Enucleation is generally appropriate for tumors that are localized to the surface of the pancreas.
