The surgical anatomy of the spleen
Your spleen is located in the left upper part of your abdomen. Because it is located at quite a posterior location (towards the back), it can be difficult to access in surgery. The spleen has attachments to the colon and to the stomach, and its artery and vein are intertwined with the tail part of the pancreas. Your surgeon at The Surgeons Collective in Perth will help you understand the complexity of a spleen surgery or splenectomy. We value the importance of clear communication and want to make sure that you feel supported and cared for, during your treatment by our team.
