Abdominal Surgery & Whipple Procedure

Abdominal surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures including the following: esophagectomy, gastrectomy, cholecystectomy (gallbladder), pancreatectomy ("Whipple Procedure"), splenectomy, appendectomy and liver resection.

Ochsner surgeons are among the national leaders in these fields. Our physicians specialize in oncological (cancer) surgery and general surgical abdominal procedures using laparoscopic and general surgical techniques, including the "Whipple Procedure." Our experts utilize the most advanced clinical treatments available to diagnose and treat patients. We take special measures to ensure the comfort and education of our patients as well as their family members - knowing they all play an important role in the recovery process.

Working closely with the Ochsner Cancer Institute, we use a multi-disciplinary team approach to detect and treat cancer. This team consists of a surgeon, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, nurse and social worker. Working together, these specialists, in conjunction with the patient, decide on the treatment course that best meets the needs of each patient.
