Steven J. Hughes, MD, chief of the division of general surgery at UF, is one of a handful of surgeons in the world pioneering the performance of this complex procedure. Laparoscopic surgery uses fewer, smaller incisions - Dr. Hughes is actively researching whether laparoscopic Whipple procedures result in fewer complications and a faster recovery. Dr. Hughes and his colleagues at UF Health perform about 100 a year, which is a high volume for such a complex procedure.
