The hepatobiliary system involves organs necessary for digestion, including the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and gallbladder. Our surgeons who specialize in hepatobiliary surgery work closely with our Gastroenterology colleagues and referring physicians to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care for these often complex conditions.
Hepatobiliary Surgical Procedures include:
- Liver Resections – involves the surgical removal of a portion of the liver. This procedure is usually performed for some types of liver cancer and for certain metatastic colorectal cancers.
- Pancreatic Resections – These operations are typically done for benign disease or cancer and may be performed laparoscopically depending on the patient’s disease process. Our surgeons are also able to treat necrotizing pancreatitis.
- Cholecystectomy – Refers to the removal of the gallbladder. This is one of the most common operations Evansville Surgical Associates performs. Greater than 95% of all cholecystectomies are performed laparoscopically, usually on an outpatient basis.
- Whipple Procedures – A complex operation to remove the head of the pancreas, the first part of the small intestine (duodenum), the gallbladder and the bile duct.
