At present this procedure may be offered at USC to selected patients with chronic pancreatitis, cystic tumors and islet cell tumors of the pancreas and patients who have ampullary cancer. We do not offer the laparoscopic Whipple operation for pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The Whipple operation is performed laparoscopically utilizing a laparoscopic hand-access device.
