Florida Hospital Tampa Joins an Elite Group of Hospitals Across the United States Offering Fully Robotic Whipple Surgery
Date:5/14/2013

Tampa, Fl (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Florida Hospital Tampa is among an elite group of hospitals across the United States offering fully robotic Whipple surgery with Dr. Alexander Rosemurgy and Dr. Sharona Ross. The operation, also called a pancreaticoduodenectomy, is the most common surgical treatment for cancerous or benign tumors of the head of the pancreas. Dr. Rosemurgy and Dr. Ross are both advanced laparoscopic and robotic hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) and foregut surgeons. They undertook their first robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy on Tuesday, April 30, 2013. The procedure involves removal of the gallbladder, bile duct, part of the stomach and duodenum, and the head of the pancreas. Together, they have undertaken more than 1,600 pancreatectomies, making them among some of the most proficient pancreatic surgeons.

The fully robotic Whipple surgery procedure requires a highly technical skill set that only the most advanced surgeons can carry out with success. The robotic approach enhances the operation with its three dimensional portrayal of the abdominal cavity, assisting the surgeons in making precise dissections. Since the operation employs minimally invasive techniques, patients do not have large scars. This also allows patients who have cancerous masses to start chemotherapy sooner.

“A Whipple operation involves removal of the head of the pancreas, gallbladder, bile duct and part of the small intestine. Then the remaining pancreas, bile duct and intestines are reconstructed. This usually requires a large incision to accomplish this. The use of the robot allows us to undertake the Whipple operation using several small incisions, which offers hope for less pain, shorter hospital stay, faster recovery time, and minimal scarring and blood loss,” said Dr. Rosemurgy. Patients typically undergo a pancreaticoduodenec
