The Use of Intraoperative Ultrasound During a Robotic Caudal Pancreatectomy with Splenic Preservation

A neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is a rare type of tumor that can occur anywhere in the pancreas. Diagnosis and treatment of NETs depend on the type of tumor, its location, whether it produces excess hormones, how aggressive it is and whether it has spread to other parts of the pancreas.1

Dr. Marcos Belotto, Robotic Surgery Specialist at Celebration Florida Hospital, recently used a bk5000 ultrasound system during a pancreatic surgery case to help him locate a neuroendocrine tumor. Dr. Belotto has a PhD in Surgery from Hospital Sírio Libanês and a Masters of Surgery from Santa Casa de São Paulo.
