Centralization of pancreatic surgery has resulted in improved short‐term outcomes in a number of healthcare systems. The aim of this study was to see whether hospital volume influenced long‐term prognosis, use of adjuvant therapy or histopathological evaluation of patients undergoing surgical resection for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (
