The robotic-assisted Whipple procedure, also known as a robotic-assisted pancreaticoduodenectomy, is a surgical procedure to remove the head of the pancreas, the duodenum (first part of small intestine), gallbladder, and bile duct, using the da Vinci® Xi™.
Benefits of the robotic-assisted Whipple procedure include a minimally invasive approach to a complex procedure, smaller incisions, fewer complications, and more precise surgery with a faster recovery.
Patients with these conditions may benefit from the robotic-assisted Whipple Procedure:
- Pancreatic cancer, cysts, or tumors
- Ampullary cancer
- Bile duct cancer
- Neuroendocrine tumors
- Small bowel cancer
- Trauma to the pancreas or small intestine
- Other tumors or disorders involving the pancreas, duodenum or bile ducts
