Hepato Pancreatic Biliary Tract Surgeries
Hepatobiliary tract and pancreatic surgery are surgical procedures used to treat cancers and diseases that affect the liver, gallbladder, bile duct & pancreas organ. The procedure includes the removal of primary tumor and metastatic or secondary tumours of the organs.
These procedures are one of the most complex surgeries which need expertise & skill of a super specialist surgeon.
The liver, gallbladder and bile ducts are known as the Hepatobiliary system. The liver produces and secretes bile which is stored in the gallbladder and released through bile ducts into the intestines to help digest fat and carry away waste.
The pancreas organ is part of the gastrointestinal system that makes and secretes digestive enzymes into the intestine which help in digestion, and it is also an endocrine organ that makes and secretes hormones into the blood which control metabolism.
Hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery can be performed using minimally invasive techniques which lead to better results . Some common procedures include:
- Removal of the distal or lower portion of stomach with the Whipple procedure
- Anti-reflux surgery
- Pancreatectomy (partial or total removal of the pancreas)
- Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
- Bile duct resection and reconstruction
Hepatobiliary tract & pancreatic surgical procedures are also used to treat benign diseases like cysts, bile duct injuries and blockage, and portal hypertension. Some tumours affecting the liver, gallbladder and bile duct might need major resections, and therefore need complex reconstruction procedures.
