Fortunately, treatment is available for this crucial disease. In most of the cases, the head of the pancreas is affected and normally the influenced part of the pancreas along with the duodenum, bile duct, gall bladder and section stomach and intestine is removed and making a detour between the stomach and the jejunum for food entry.
