Q. What is Whipple surgery and what is its survival rate?

A. The Whipple procedure is the one done for the removal of the head of the pancreas and duodenum (the first part of the small intestine), the gallbladder and the bile duct. The removal of these parts is followed by reattaching the remaining organs for proper digestion of the food after the surgery. It is most commonly used to treat pancreatic cancer confined to the head.
