Whipple surgery for pancreatic cancer The Whipple operation (pancreatoduodenectomy) seeks to eliminate the pancreas head, where most tumors exist. Because the pancreas is so intertwined with other organs, the surgeon often needs to remove the first section of the small intestine (duodenum), the gallbladder, the end of the common bile duct and occasionally a portion of the stomach. The bladder, bile duct, and remaining part of the pancreas are reconnected during the reconstruction process of the procedure.

The Whipple laparoscopic procedure is performed by six small incisions in the abdominal wall. One incision removes a laparoscope, a long thin tube with a lighted camera at its end. The surgeon operates using specially constructed surgical instruments inserted into the remaining incisions, guided by the images of the laparoscope seen on an operating room monitor.
Whipple surgery by laparoscopy usually takes four to five hours. Of those who undergo traditional surgery, most patients leave the hospital in four to six days , compared with eight to 10 days.
