Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery

Surgery & medical treatment for diseases of liver, gall bladder, pancreas & spleen. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the most commonly performed operation in our unit. Besides that CBD explorations, cystogastrostomy, cystojejunostomy, pancreatectomies, longitudinal pancreatojejunostomy, select liver resections and splenectomies are regularly performed.

Liver: Abscess [Amoebic/ pyogenic]: Percutaneous drainage, aspiration, pigtail catheter insertion, open surgical drainage with peritoneal toilet

Hydatid cyst of liver: Enucleations, percutaneous aspiration (PAIR), laparoscopic surgery for hydatid.

Liver tumors: Liver resections

Liver trauma: Conservative management, damage controll surgery with packing, open surgical heamostasis, Resection

Gall bladder & Common bile ducts:

Gall stones/ CBD stones/ acute cholecystitis/ chronic cholecystitis:Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, Laparoscopic partial cholecystectomy, open cholecystectomy, partial cholecystectomy, CBD explorations, Roux en Y- Hepaticojejunostomy

Biliary injuries [after open or laparoscopic surgery]: Roux en Y hepaticojejunostomy
