Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs) are uncommon but clinically challenging and fascinating tumors. Small, benign neoplasms are readily curable by surgical resection. This video presents the case of a 40-year-old woman with a tumor at the level of the pancreatic body. The patient’s virtual reconstruction is used during surgery to help the surgeon pinpoint the lesion accurately. A laparoscopic approach is used.
