After visiting Liv Hospital we had only good impressions. Dr. Selemi Suzubish - above all praise, he was very polite, correct, patient, answered all our questions in detail and explained. Also very satisfied with the work of coordinator Bakhtygul and translators Renata and Madina. It should be noted that the procedure for examination on a "steep" tomograph turned out to be very difficult and difficult for the child. In one reception we did not pass it, the second part was spent the next day. The results were announced to us the next day, we received the disk, but so far there is no research protocol.

"The result of the consultation was more than satisfactory
The most basic and most important is the medical equipment for a complete high-quality diagnosis. A small minus is the very low quality of the Internet, from the wishes: the possibility of placing on the territory of a small street sports complex. The territory of the clinic, the ward, the clinic itself comply with all modern world standards.

Very god and experienced surgeon, I recommend him to everyone who needs bariatric surgery. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the hospital . The hospital was a big disappointment. Despite nurse Berna it was a big problem to get competent medical care. The staff do not speak English, that is worsening the situation.Very low level of medical qualifications of the nurses . No help from caregivers. I kindly recommend to the surgeon to choose another hospital for the future.

FAQ about Whipple surgery in Turkey

The following conditions must be met for a patient to become eligible for the procedure:

  • tumor localized in the head of the pancreas;
  • cancer is not metastatic;
  • removal of the tumor does not put a patient at risk.

Determining if a patient is eligible for the operation is a challenging task. Only the most advanced imaging techniques and best Whipple surgeons may provide an entirely accurate diagnosis. It is advisable to receive the second opinion on patient’s case with uncertain eligibility.

  • malignant tumor of the gallbladder;

  • pancreatitis;
  • bile duct cancer;
  • small bowel cancer;

severe or chronic infections (hepatitis, STDs); cardiopulmonary comorbidities.

Types of Whipple operation

Whipple surgery can be done in 2 ways:

  1. Open surgery method. This is the most commonly used technique. A surgeon makes an incision in patient’s abdomen to access the pancreas.
  2. Laparoscopic surgery. It is a minimally invasive variation of Whipple operation. The procedure is performed through several small incisions in patient’s abdomen. A doctor operates with special long instruments under control of optical camera. This technique puts patient’s body under less stress.

Whipple surgery in details

Preoperative preparation for Whipple surgery

A patient is connected to intravenous line that supplies medicine and nutrition during the operation. An epidural catheter or spinal injection is administered. Medications delivered in that way block nerves in the abdominal area. This is done in order to prevent severe pain syndromes during recovery.

Surgery process

The invasion is performed by a team of physicians: top surgeons for Whipple procedure, nurses, and anesthesiologists. The surgery takes up to 12 hours to complete. A patient stays under general anesthesia the whole time. An operation starts when an incision is made in patient’s abdomen. After all affected organs are removed, a surgeon reconnects remaining intestines and pancreas to restore the functioning of digestive system.

After the surgery

In most cases, patients are placed in the general surgical unit after the operation. Patient’s vitals are monitored periodically to exclude complications and infections. The diet will be scheduled and advanced slowly, to restore the functions of the digestive system. Recovery time after the pancreaticoduodenectomy Whipple procedure takes up to 2 weeks.

If a patient’s condition is severe or there are complications during the surgery, a patient is rushed to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Nutrition and medications are delivered intravenously and patient’s vitals are constantly monitored. Catheters are used to drain urine and various fluids from the surgery area. Whipple surgery cost may increase due to the use of additional medications.
