Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery

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.
