Dr. Alexander Rosemurgy and Dr. Sharona Ross Successfully Perform "Whipple Procedure"

We are thrilled to relate that Dr. Rosemurgy and Dr. Ross of Florida Hospital Tampa have successfully conducted their first robotic pancreaticoduodenectomy, or "Whipple Procedure". A pancreaticoduodenectomy involves the removal of the gall bladder, bile duct, part of the small intestine, and the head of the pancreas. This advanced surgery is often used in the surgical treatment of pancreatic cancer. What is new about this procedure is the complete use of robotic equipment, which increases precision and furthers the benefit of this minimally invasive procedure. Only experienced specialists at elite hospitals perform this operation. Dr. Rosemurgy and Dr. Ross, having already performed more than 1,600 pancreatectomies, are among the top in their profession.

The American Cancer Society approximates that this year alone, 45,220 new cases of pancreatic cancer will be diagnosed. Laparoscopic surgery can be a treatment that affords for a quicker recovery, diminishes pain, and minimizes scarring. If you or a loved one in the Tampa area could benefit from this or any minimally invasive operation, then look to the experts at Tampa laparoscopic surgery.
