Büchler as an academic

Research had a very significant role in Büchler's life. He is the initiator of numerous research projects, and has significantly enriched the surgical literature with results of laboratory and clinical studies. Heidelberg's surgery figures have greatly increased since his presence. Büchler has over 1100 publications listed in PubMed, a figure that is very rarely achieved.

King of the pancreas

Büchler's basic research interest lies in pancreatic diseases and therapy. Heidelberg became a very well respected pancreatic institution allowing a European Pancreatic Centre to be founded. Currently, around 600 pancreatic resections are performed annually. As pancreatic cancer is rare, this is a very high figure.
