Dr. Rajendra Sonawane: Rare ‘Central Pancreatectomy ‘ for insulin producing Tumor

Insulin producing tumour in pancreas is known as insulinomas. High insulin production leads to life threatening attacks of seriously low blood sugar. Diagnosis of such tumours is challenging. After years of visiting multiple hospitals, this patient got new lease of life when his tumour was finally diagnosed at KDAH.

Traditional operations for pancreatic resection are Whipple’s procedure or distal / partial pancreatectomy. Given the small size of tumour, operations like this would have rendered patient a diabetic. Hence a pancreas preserving procedure was performed.
