Dr. Olberding completes the first robotic Whipple procedure in Nebraska
on July 2nd, 2021 Dr. Olberding completed the first robotic Whipple procedure in the State of nebraska.
A Whipple procedure, or pancreaticoduodenectomy, is a procedure that removes the head of the pancreas, the first part of the small intestine (duodenum), the gallbladder, and part of the common bile duct. This procedure is most commonly performed as part of the treatment for pancreatic cancer. Typically this is performed in an open fashion requiring a large abdominal incision as well as a prolonged hospital stay for recovery as well as pain management. Dr. Olberding completed this procedure with a robot assisted laparoscopic approach which allows him to remove this specimen utilizing several small 8 mm incisions with one slightly larger incision where the specimen is removed from the body. Utilizing this technique has multiple advantages for patients including quicker healing times, less pain, as well as better cosmetic outcomes. This Patient was discharged from the hospital after just 4 days and was seen in our clinic for follow up as pictured above
