Total Laparoscopic Surgery Performed at Global Hospitals

Doctors at Global Hospitals conducted a total laparoscopy whipples surgery on a 45-year-old male patient who had pancreatitis and a tumour in pancreas.

The usual surgery to remove tumours from pancreas is to conduct whipples surgery. The procedure involves surgical removal of some parts of pancreas, bile duct and portions of intestines.

After the removal of the tumours, the surgeons undertake reconstruction where all the organs are reconnected again. This procedure is demanding for patients as well as the doctors.

Vijaykumar C. Bada, Department of Surgical Gastroenterology, Global Hospitals said that, "Under normal circumstances, whipples operation would have been performed. But this patient is a young male and a strenuous worker by occupation. Also, after considering the risk of respiratory and wound problems, we undertook a total laparoscopic whipples surgery. This procedure consists of small incisions and recovery is very quick."
