HEPATOBILIARY SURGERY

The hepatobiliary system encompasses the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and bile. Considered the ‘bitter’ parts of the body, the hepatobiliary system plays important roles in removing toxins from the blood, converting food into energy, regulating the hormones, producing body cholesterol and regulating the body’s supply of vitamins and minerals. Hepatobiliary problems usually consist of growths or cancer at the liver, bile ducts or biliary tract. This increasingly common but overlooked problem can be treated with early diagnosis and surgery to remove the cancerous parts before they spread to other parts of the body. The hepatobiliary problems treated are included below:

  • Primary liver cancer
  • Benign liver tumours
  • Adenoma (growths)
  • Biliary cysts
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Secondary liver cancer from cancer at other parts of the body
  • Acute pancreatic
  • Complex benign hepatobiliary and pancreatic problems
