Pancreas

Pancreas

The pancreas is a very unique organ. It has many regulatory functions: endocrine and exocrine functions. It is very important in regulating the gastro-intestinal tract function, hormone secretion and inhibition, digestion and absorption of different components of food.
It also has a unique anatomical location adjacent to the most important vessels supplying the liver, spleen, stomach and small bowel. That is why pancreatic surgery is carried out by well experienced surgeons with great knowledge of the anatomical variations that occur in these vessels. Dr. Ahmad Bashir has a special interest in pancreatic surgery through minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, specifically tackling pancreatic tumors.
