The only differences:
The pediatric surgeon Prof.dr. Winfried barthlen is personally present during every PET-CT investigation. In the dynamic phase of image akquisition there may arise important information for the surgeon which gets lost when looking only at the static results.
We scrutinize in detail for the segmenal mosaic form of congenital hyperinsulinism. In this case there a a real chance for cure.
We prefer the laparoscopic approach with minimal incisions whenever possible.
We do not perform the extensive subtotal (95-98%) resections of the pancreas. We think that a diabetes rate of > 90% later in life is too high. We have shown that successful treatment is possible with much less (see gallery of surgically treated children)
