Hepato-biliary-pancreatic surgery solves the problems of this area which require surgery to be treated. Among them we find:
- Gallbladder surgery
- Bile duct surgery (common bile duct)
- Liver resection of segments, including the hemiliver (half of the organ)
- Pancreatic head resection
- Resection of the body and the tail of the pancreas
- End of liver derivation
Sometimes this surgery is motivated by benign diseases but, unfortunately, sometimes it is also motivated by malignancies. However, advances in surgery have given all patients a glimmer of hope, including oncologic patients. These advances include better diagnostic methods, better anesthesia methods, new and more effective operative equipments and a greater knowledge of the postoperative management of these patients.
- Laparoscopic CholecystectomyRemoval of the gallbladder using a video camera and a special material that allows surgeons to operate through small incisions.
- Liver SurgeryTreatment using surgery for liver diseases that require resection for its treatment.
- Ablation by radiofrequency in hepatic metastasisAblation by radiofrequency in patients with liver tumors.
