Prof Anees has also attributed his success to his teacher and mentor, late Prof S M Ashraf; Unit Incharge, Prof M A Khan and dedicated team of surgeons and anaesthetists including Dr Shehtaj Khan, Dr Shehna Ali (Anaesthetist), Resident doctors and the rest of the staff.

Whipple’s procedure is a major surgery done for cancer around and in the head of pancreas, a gland responsible for digestion and metabolism. In this surgery, distal end of stomach, whole of duodenum, lower end of common bile duct and head of pancreas are removed, and reconstruction is done with the small intestine. The surgery is technically challenging and takes about 5-6hours or even more at times.
