Hepatobiliary Surgery & Pancreatic

Biliary

  • Carcinoma of the gallbladder
  • Malignant tumors of the bile duct
  • Bile duct injuries and strictures
  • Choledochal cysts
  • Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis​

Pancreas

  • Pancreatitis
  • Pancreatic pseudocyst
  • Malignant neoplasms of the pancreas
  • Cystic neoplasms of the pancreas
  • Pancreatic islet cell tumors

 Liver

  • Hepatic trauma
  • Metastatic neoplasms of the liver
  • Benign tumors and cysts of the liver
  • Portal hypertension (portasystemic shunts)

With the use of laparoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), all patients with malignancies are staged pre-operatively. Following staging, our hepatobiliary team works in conjunction with the referring physician to determine the treatment best suited for the patient's condition. Because choosing a treatment plan is an important decision, we review all options with patients and family members as well as their referring physician, explaining the benefits and disadvantages of each option.

Biliary Tumors and Injuries
Biliary surgery is most frequently performed for stones, strictures and tumors
