At the department we perform pancreatic surgery for malignant as well as non-malignant tumours and chronic inflammations.
Before every pancreatic surgery, the patient must visit the outpatient office of the surgery with their current medical report. The doctor at the outpatient office evaluates the findings, explains the disease to the patient and proposes therapeutic options. In justified cases, the doctor prepares documentation of the patient for its review by the so-called multidisciplinary team. This team discusses the case, determines further steps and documents them in writing; subsequently, the doctor informs the patient about the proposed procedure(s). If the patient is diagnosed with a disease not treated at IKEM or a therapeutic procedure not performed at IKEM is proposed, all documentation is given to the patient and the patient is recommended centre(s) to be contacted regarding the proposed therapy.
If the patient has a disease treated at IKEM and is indicated for surgery, the doctor at the outpatient office determines the date of surgery for the patient. At the same time, the patient receives a medical report for their general practitioner or the referring doctor and a list of preoperative assessments. These assessments shall be completed by their general practitioner within 2 weeks before the surgery. The patient should bring the results of these assessments to the admission office.
