Robotic Whipple- Tips and Tricks


Professor & Chief, GI and HPB Service for the Department of Surgical Oncology at Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai, India, Dr. Shailesh V. Shrikhande claims “the Whipple is perhaps the most demanding of all surgeries.” He talks about published study results, then begins with a diagram of the port placement before showing da Vinci camera footage of his procedure. One feature of the robot he appreciates is the ability to hold tissue with one robotic arm while continuing the procedure with the other two. He has good video, augmented with titles of the anatomy and steps as he thoroughly describes his steps. Lecure with Powerpoints and robotic surgery video, 12:34
