To Make an Appointment

Hepatobiliary system consists of bile ducts or bile, gallbladder and the liver. Abnormalities in the hepatobiliary system can be referred to as a hepatobiliary disease. Pancreas are situated behind the stomach, it is made of exocrine cells which secretes digestive enzymes and insulin that regulates the blood sugar level in the body. The liver, pancreas, gallbladder and the bile ducts together form the hepatobiliary and pancreatic system. Any surgery related to the hepatobiliary and pancreatic system is highly complicated and requires highly trained doctors and such surgeries have potentially high complication rate. 
Reason to undergo the hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery:

  • It helps to treat cancers and other issues related to the pancreas, bile ducts and the liver.
  • It majorly involves the removal of the cancerous part of the liver, pancreas or the bile duct, gallbladder.
  • The surgery involves the treatment of both the benign and the malignant diseases of the liver, pancreas, bile ducts.

Common Surgeries related to the hepatobiliary and pancreatic diseases:

  • Pancreaticoduodenectomy which is a surgical oncology, which involves removal of the distal stomach.
  • Laparoscopic anti-reflux to correct acid reflux.
  • Laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy to remove a part of the pancreas.
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy to remove the gallbladder and reconstruction of the bile duct structures to narrow the bile ducts
  • Lower transplant and liver resection to remove a portion of the pancreas or the entire pancreas.

Risks:

  • Smoking causes hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery at an early age and increases the severity of the disease and increases the complexities post the surgery.
  • The safety and the risk factors become a prime concern for the patients above 80 years of age.
  • The surgery might not be able to reduce the symptoms experienced by the patient, if the person is alcoholic or has a history of being exposed to alcohol for a prolonged period of time. 
  • There is considerable risk of major morbidity and significant mortality following the hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgeries in cases where the patient is above 55 years of age.
  • Surgical site infection is observed in many cases where major hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgeries are performed.
  • Excessive blood loss in case of elderly patients is another frequently observed risk.
  • Persistent pain post the surgery is another risk that has widely been observed in the patients with comorbidity.
