Minimally invasive pancreatoduodenectomy (MIPD) has gained popularity in recent times and is now increasingly performed with several institutional series and comparative studies being reported. MIPD appears to provide similar perioperative and oncologic outcomes in select patients, when performed at experienced, high-volume centers. Improved training opportunities, registry participation, and prospective evaluation are needed for larger penetrance of this technique among pancreatic surgeons across the globe.
