The development of science and technology not only promotes the development of the society but also has a great influence on the progress of medicine. The three-dimensional (3D) printing technology together with other digital production modes will promote the realization of the third industrial revolution. New 3D equipment and concepts brought a huge leap forward in surgery, and pancreatic surgery also benefits from this. The author has committed himself to the scientific research of 3D pancreatic surgery for decades, and applying 3D visualization technology to the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer, 3D visualization of peripancreatic vessels, resectability evaluation of the pancreatic cancer and prevention of pancreatic fistula. This article presents a new idea on the development of pancreatic surgery and introduces not only the progress in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic diseases in the era of digital medicine, but also the relative advantages brought about by the new equipment (such as da Vinci robotic surgical system, 3D Laparoscope).
