Topic: Number of surgeries performed?
I am trying to find a good surgeon to remove cancer from the distal bile duct. The surgery would remove part of the pancreas, bile duct and small intestine. Modified Whipple? When I call around, no one seems to have the number of surguries the surgeon has performed. Can you share the name of the hospital and name of the surgeon you have seen for this and how many the surgeon told you he performed? I can only do one second opinion and can't fly around to everyone to ask during an appt, so if you can share your information it would be appreciated. Hopefully I will get several names of surgeons who have done a lot that I can choose from. I would like to do the surgery locally, but my area (NW) may not have a good option.
