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
  • Pancreatitis
  • Ampullary cancer
  • Bile duct cancer
  • Neuroendocrine tumors
  • Small bowel cancer
  • Trauma to the pancreas or small intestine
