The outcomes of the Whipple procedure are largely dependent on the unique circumstances of the patient, the tumor, and the expertise of the surgical team performing the procedure. What is known, however, is that survival rates from the Whipple procedure are higher at hospitals that specialize in this type of surgery. A recent study of the Whipple procedure reported in The New England Journal of Medicine found that operative mortality rates to be four times higher at low-volume hospitals (16%) than at high-volume hospitals (%). Emory Healthcare is home to one of few of the Southeast’s high volume Whipple procedure programs, having performed 119 Whipple procedures in 2010 alone.
