Participants will receive one dose of cefoxitin within 1 hour of incision time, redosed every 2-4 hours in the operating room until closure of the incision, and discontinued within 24 hours after anesthesia end time.

- Compare the effectiveness of cefoxitin with piperacillin-tazobactam as surgical antibiotic prophylaxis in decreasing the overall rate of postoperative surgical site infections in participants undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy [ Time Frame: 30 days ]To compare the effectiveness of cefoxitin, a second generation cephalosporin (Cohort 1), with piperacillin-tazobactam, a broad-spectrum penicillin (Cohort 2), as surgical antibiotic prophylaxis in decreasing the overall rate of postoperative SSIs in patients undergoing PD. The primary endpoint, overall SSI rate, is defined as superficial incisional SSI, deep incisional SSI, or organ/space SSI within the first 30 days after the operation, as defined according to the ACS NSQIP data collection operations manual.
