Treating Liver & Pancreas Diseases

Diseases of the liver, pancreas, and biliary organs can be surgically treated by general surgeons. (The surgical specialty is called hepatopancreatobiliary surgery.) Surgeons who perform these operations are highly skilled with fellowship training (training beyond the standard medical degree). Our surgeons also work closely with other specialists like gastroenterologists, hepatologists, radiologists, and others to provide the best care possible.

Specific diseases and conditions treated by surgeons in this specialty, hepatopancreatobiliary, include the following:

  • Benign tumors (noncancerous)
  • Bile duct injuries and strictures
  • Bile duct inflammation
  • End-stage liver disease
  • Liver trauma
  • Malignant gallbladder and bile duct tumors (cancerous)
  • Malignant liver tumors (cancerous)
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Portal hypertension
