Liver and Pancreas Surgery

Laparoscopic and open methods are available to treat biliary tumors, cholangiocarcinoma, cirrhosis, chronic pancreatitis, gallbladder cancer, metastatic liver disease, pancreatic cancer and disorders, primary liver tumors, and variceal bleeding. Available procedures include cholecystectomy, Frey procedure, liver resection, pancreatectomy, reconstruction of the bile duct, shunts for variceal bleeding, and splenectomy.

Our surgeons are able to perform such laparoscopic-assisted formal liver resections as right hemicolectomy through incisions that are much smaller than those of a standard open procedure, resulting in less blood loss and rapid patient recovery.
