PANCREATIC SURGERY

Pancreatic disorders though not very common are a frequent source of morbidity and mortality amongst patients with GI disorders. Pancreatic cancer remains a challenge and usually requires complex surgeries like Whipple’s procedure and distal pancreatectomy. The complication and mortality rate of these procedures have steadily declined over the years. Acute and chronic pancreatitis are relatively common problems. These require Surgeries like Frey’s procedure and longitudinal pancreatojejunostomy. Acute pancreatitis in rare situations may need surgeries like necrosectomy and drainage procedures.
