Insulinoma is the most common functional neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas. Laparoscopic resection of insulinomas is feasible and safe. Laparoscopic ultrasound contributes to successful insulinoma localization and laparoscopic resection. This video shows a laparoscopic resection of an insulinoma located in the uncinate process of the pancreas.
