Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery

  • What is Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery?

    The liver, pancreas, gall bladder and bile duct are known as the hepatobiliary and pancreatic system. Surgery to treat cancers and disorders in these organs is highly complicated and challenging and requires a high level of skill and expertise.

    Hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery can be performed using minimally invasive techniques. Some common procedures include:

    • Removal of the distal (lower) stomach with the Whipple procedure
    • Anti-reflux surgery for the gastrointestinal system
    • Removal of part of the pancreas
    • Removal of the gall bladder and reconstruction of the bile duct
    • Liver transplant and liver resection (removal of all or part of the liver)
  • Hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery is used to treat cancers and diseases of these organs. It includes the resection (removal) of primary and metastatic (secondary) tumours of the liver, gall bladder, bile duct and pancreas. It is also used to treat benign diseases like cysts, bile duct injuries and strictures (blockage), and portal hypertension. Some tumours affecting the liver, gall bladder and bile duct might need major resections, and might therefore need complex reconstruction of the bile duct, hepatic artery and portal vein.

    Such procedures involve a multidisciplinary team to provide a individualised treatment plan for each patient. This team of specialists and clinicians include hepatobiliary and transplant surgeons, medical oncologists, interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists and anaesthesiologists.
