A small celebration with patient and our team at discharge of our 50th pancreatic cancer resection patient in 2 years at PACE hospitals including 35 whipples resections and other types of pancreatic resections. Highlights of this journey have been.
A successfully discharged whipples operation in a 89 year old gentleman from East Godavari. Several of our patients were more than 75 yrs. I strongly believe age is just a number and no patient should be written off just based on age without considering physiological status.
A remarkable story of whipples with portal vein and hepatic artery resection in a young woman with a 9 kg pancreatic tumor (SPEN) . She underwent a surgery outside where she had massive bleeding due to colletarals . 10 units blood given abdomen was packed and shifted to us for further care. After a 10 hr grueling operation We removed the tumor 2 yrs ago and today i got the good news that she just had a baby boy this morning.
