Laparoscopic whipple procedure is a type of surgical operation which is used to remove the front part (or the head) of the pancreas, duodenum, or the front part of the small intestine, the bile duct, and the gallbladder. Laparoscopy is a method of performing this procedure. In this procedure, the surgeon makes several little incisions in your abdominal area to do the surgery. The laparoscopic surgical method is a type of minimally invasive surgery. It is a little risky procedure but still, it is a lifesaver in many cases.
The Laparoscopic Whipple procedure is generally used for treating the disorders like tumors, etc of the intestine, the pancreas, and the bile duct. The main goal of this laparoscopic whipple procedure is to remove the issue from your body and prevent it from growing and spreading to the other organs. For cancer patients, this is the only treatment currently that can cure most of these types of tumors and also can lead to prolonged survival.
So, it may occur to be a good treatment option for the people who are affected by-
Dr. Vinay Samuel Gaikwad is a dynamic cancer surgeon with considerable training. He has more than two decades of clinical expertise and was previously affiliated with some of India’s finest hospitals. He is the best choice for the Laparoscopic Whipple procedure in India.
There is nothing much you can do. Just follow the instructions and cooperate with your surgeon, he/ she will do most of the things for you. Firstly your surgeon will assess your health through several tests and ensure that you are healthy enough for this complex surgery.
Your surgeon will analyze a list of factors and decide which approach is best for you. You may need to optimize your health conditions before proceeding with the surgery. If you are reading this article, chances are that your surgeon has chosen a laparoscopic surgical approach for your treatment.
Before the procedure, an intravenous (IV) line will be put into a vein of your arm (usually). This intravenous line will be further used to inject medications and fluids into your veins as per the requirement. The surgeon will also give you some special medications to help you relax in case you are nervous.
You may also get injected with a spinal injection or undergo placement of an epidural catheter in addition to blocking the local nerves of the abdominal wall. These add- ons will help you to recover with minimal discomfort and pain after the surgery and help you to decrease the number of pain-relieving medications that you may require after the surgery.
A well-trained and experienced team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, and specialized surgical nurses will have your back while doing the surgery. First, they will put you to sleep by giving you certain medications. After you are asleep, some additional IV lines or intravenous lines may be placed with other monitoring devices, depending on your overall health condition at that time and the complexity of the operation. A urinary catheter will be inserted into your bladder. It is a tube that will drain out the urine in your bladder during and after your surgery. It will generally get removed from your bladder after one or two days of the surgery.
The surgery may take four to eight hours to complete depending on the complexity of the operation. An adequate dosage of anesthesia will be injected into you to keep you asleep and unaware throughout the operation.
The surgeon will make some incisions in your abdomen to access your internal organs. In the laparoscopic approach, the doctor will also insert a camera for having a clear understanding and extra guidance throughout the operation.
The goal of the laparoscopic whipple procedure will be to remove the head of the pancreas, the duodenum or the beginning part of the small intestine, the gallbladder, and the bile duct. In some cases, the surgeon may also have to remove a small portion of the stomach or the nearby lymph nodes depending on your condition and the situation.
In the end, the surgeon will reconnect the remaining parts of your stomach, pancreas, and intestines to allow your digestion process without any interruption.
After your laparoscopic whipple procedure, you can expect to either stay in the general surgical unit or the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) depending on your medical condition or the complexity of the case. After discharge from the hospital, most people can return to their homes for the continuation of the recovery and can also get involved in their everyday activities after about four to six weeks past the surgery.
Your chances of long-term survival after having a laparoscopic whipple procedure depend upon your particular situation date, Whipple procedure is the only known cure for most cancers and tumors of the pancreas. After the surgery, you must stay in touch with your surgeon and your family and friends to feel less stressed.
A laparoscopic Whipple operation may be available for certain patients. The Whipple surgery is performed laparoscopically through tiny incisions in the abdominal wall. Through a single incision, a laparoscope, a long, thin tube with a camera at its tip, is introduced.
The standard Whipple operation and the pylorus-sparing Whipple procedure are the two most prevalent forms of Whipple procedures. The traditional Whipple procedure involves the removal of the gallbladder, a section of the bile duct, the head of the pancreas, the duodenum, and a portion of the stomach. In addition, the gallbladder is removed.
The fact that Whipple procedures involve so many distinct organs is one of the primary reasons for their complexity; nevertheless, this is not the sole reason. “The pancreas is positioned in a very tough spot, deep in the center section of the belly,” “The location of the pancreatic makes it difficult to access.”
The Whipple technique is without a shadow of a doubt an invasive and agonizing operation. This is mostly the result of the significant amount of organs that are either removed or changed during the procedure, as well as the close proximity of the pancreas to nerves as they emerge from the spine at the back of the abdomen.

My mother was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer on 1st August,2022 and have carried out all basic test to access current stage of cancer. We were getting mixed feedback on whether it is operable or not.
She is required to undergo a Whipple Surgery, and this is not a simple surgery. Very handful of doctors in world can perform this surgery successfully.
We moved across various Hospitals and met lot of surgeons to seek an opinion.
During this process, we met Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad, he examined all reports of mother and met her. Later he explained merits of surgery and assured us that it is operable. He was very confident that though reports say it is 3rd or 4th stage cancer, but this is a very early-stage detection, and will get more to know once we operate.
The compassion with which we saw, and he treat the patients is more effective than any medicine!
Looking at his expertise, Knowledge on subject and God willing, we decided to go ahead with surgery of my mother through Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad.
He decided a date 10th August,2022. This was more than 5-6 Hours Surgery. Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad along with his Great committed / Dedicated & highly professional Team – Dr. Jyoti Bhat, Naved ji and other Team members, have performed operation successfully.
Finally, we had a successful Whipple surgery and all credits to Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad and his great Team. My mother got a second life and for us Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad and his team are messenger of God, who came together to save my mother from this illness.
Today is 30th Day post-surgery and she is getting back to normal. As per Doctor, she is perfectly okay and Cancer growth has been removed from body 100%, and no further treatment is required, other than periodic checkup.
He was right, my mother seems to have 1st or 2nd stage of cancer, which was earlier predicted as 3rd or 4th stage through radiolist reports.
I sincerely want to Thank you for your wonderful treatment and kind gesture. You have always made sure my mother was doing okay. Thanks for that Doctor Vinay Samuel Gaikwad and his Team (special mention Dr Jyoti Bhatt and Naved ji)!
Highly recommend Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad for all type of Cancer Treatment. He is a messenger of God and can cure patients with is positive attitude and enrich experience.
My father’ Inguinal surgery was suggested by his local physicians at Jalandhar. Given his age (84) and other complications, I was keen to minimize the accompanying risks and have a trouble – free procedure for him. A close friend of mine (a senior surgeon himself whose medical opinion has been invaluable for my family over the years) recommended Dr. Vinay Gaikwad to me. His words were, “If I needed someone to operate on my family, it would be Dr. Vinay). I reached out to Dr. Gaikwad and from the very beginning, he was totally invested in my father’s health.
He took time to understand the case and the accompanying risks. He also told me that while he was currently focused more on oncological cases, he would make sure that we got the best surgeon for dad. He personally requested Dr. Mayank Manjul Madan (an awesome surgeon and a wonderful human being) to conduct the surgery.
Even though Dr.Vinay was himself not conducting the surgery, he was involved throughout the process to ensure the well-being of my father. He took time out to address our concerns prior to the surgery, and he was always around to check on my father’s recovery post the surgery..
I wish him and his wonderful colleagues the best always.
My mother in law was sucessfully operated by Dr Vinay Gaikwad for a very complex pancreatic surgery in Aug’2022.
Many senior & competent doctors had refused to do the surgery, where as Dr Vinay right from the first meeting was confident in handling the case. He explained us the whole situation & process very pateintly & clarified all our doubts.
Doctor Vinay & his team took very good care post operation & my mother in law is home & doing well.
We are totally satisfied with Dr Vinay & would highly recommend him for serious cancer cases.
Dr.Jyoti Bhat was very kind and supportive throughout the surgery. He was motivating us throughout which had a very positive affect.
Ibrahim was very supportive throughout the processes in the hospital.Wewere very happy with the experience.
I went for my PIPAC procedure at C K Birla Hospital, Gurgaon , carried out by Dr Vinay Samuel Gaikwad and his team , Dr Jyoti Bhat, Mr Ibrahim, Mr Shardik and the rest.
The whole experience , which I came to know through my sister because I was under general anesthesia, was nothing short of a miracle in the hands of Dr Vinay and his team. Excellent.
I thank Dr Vinay that I could experience his expertise and efficiency of his team during this procedure.
I look forward to my remaining treatment under their care and the care of the warm , friendly and efficient staff of the hospital.
I have been taking my treatment from many other consultants but nobody advised me for a surgery . Dr Vinay is like God for me now. It was my blessing that I got to know about him through Dr Pooja Babbar , special thanks to her.
Dr Vinay & Dr Jyoti made us comfortable in the first meeting itself. The entire team Nawed, Ibrahim, nursing staffs especially Seema , the food, the housekeeping team ❤️
After surgery also I’m feeling better. I’m going home with a great satisfaction. God bless you all
