Radboudumc is one of the largest centers in the Netherlands in terms of number of pancreatic operations. Operations on the pancreas are risky procedures. The probability of serious complications is on average 27%, while at Radboudumc this is only 10%. The clinical pathway (standardized perioperative care) of pancreatic surgery that was developed and evaluated at Radboudumc plays an important role in these results. Due to this standardization, we are well equipped to perform clinical studies and explore novel interventions.
