Do You Need A Surgery Of The Pancreas?
Dr. Darshan Patel is a proficient GI surgeon who specializes in pancreas disorders. There are a variety of pancreatic procedures and treatment options available today, depending on the disease:
1. Pancreatic Resection/Pancreatectomy For Pancreatic Cancer
The surgical removal of a portion of the pancreas is known as pancreatic resection or pancreatectomy. In the situations of pancreatic cancer and Adenocarcinoma (Cancer) of the Pancreas, Cystic neoplasm of the Pancreas, and Neuroendocrine tumours of the Pancreas, the doctor may propose a pancreatic resection.
Whipple’s Procedure, Distal Pancreatectomy, and Laparoscopic Median Pancreatectomy are all options for pancreatic excision.
2. Surgery Of Necrotizing Pancreatitis
Necrotizing pancreatitis is a pancreatitis complication. When your pancreas becomes inflamed, the enzymes released in the organ can begin to damage pancreatic tissue. To avoid a life-threatening condition, the doctor will have to remove the tissue once it has died. The following procedures can be used to treat necrotizing pancreatitis:
a. Video Assisted Retroperitoneal Debridement (VARD) of Pancreatic Necrosis
b. Laparoscopic Pancreatic Necrosectomy
c. Walled-off Pancreatic Necrosis Laparoscopic Trans Gastric Drainage
d. Pancreatic Necrosis Laparotomy and Debridement
3. Surgery For Chronic Pancreatitis
The inflammation of the pancreas is known as pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis are the two kinds of pancreatitis. The latter, on the other hand, does not mend over time and frequently results in irreversible damage to the pancreas. The following procedures are performed to treat chronic pancreatitis:
- Frey’s Procedure — This process removes the damaged sections of the pancreas and allows for improved drainage, which helps to reduce inflammation.
- Partington Rochelle Procedure – This is a modified version of Puestow’s procedure that helps to avoid distal pancreatectomy.
- Laparoscopic Cystogastrostomy and Cystojejunostomy – When a patient has pancreatic pseudocysts (PPs), the patient can have persistent inflammation and excruciating discomfort. The doctor will drain a pancreatic pseudocyst using laparoscopic Cystogastrostomy.
4. Acute Pancreatitis Treatment
Acute pancreatitis is characterized by a rapid inflammation of the pancreas, which is frequently caused by alcohol consumption. Gallstones, hereditary propensity, excessive triglyceride levels, and other factors can also play a role.
Acute pancreatitis discomfort can often go away on its own. Dr. Darshan Patel may recommend Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) or gallbladder surgery in severe situations. Pancreatic surgery may be required to remove fluids and dead tissues from the organ.
