Open-uri20130101-10042-r8ljs8
The pancreas is located in the upper abdomen, behind the stomach, and in front of the spine. On the right side, the pancreas is bounded by the duodenum (small intestine), and on the left side it is bounded by the spleen. There are several very large blood vessels that touch the pancreas as well. This challenging anatomy demands that a specialist operate on the pancreas.
