The webcast, which will feature an actual procedure and panel discussion by the Jefferson Pancreatic Cancer and Related Diseases team, is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, September 18th.

All viewers will be able to ask questions online during the webcast and physicians can earn CME credit. Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

A mini-Whipple procedure is a type of surgery used to treat pancreatic cancer when the tumor is located in the head of the pancreas. Unlike a "classic" Whipple procedure in which the lower part of the stomach, all of the duodenum and the head of the pancreas are removed, this modified resection preserves the entire stomach, the pylorus and several centimeters of the upper duodenum. The procedure will be performed by internationally known pancreas specialist and Chair of Surgery at Jefferson University Hospital, Charles J. Yeo, M.D., F.A.C.S.
