As liver, pancreas and biliary surgery push into new frontiers, so does the technology needed to plan these complex procedures. Whether laparoscopic or open surgery, every possible detail of your care is analyzed to ensure your surgery is safe and effective. 3D reconstructed imaging is used to plan your surgery. No aspect of your care is taken for granted.
For patients who have been told they are not eligible for surgery, our program specializes in laparoscopic surgery in patients with cirrhosis.
If surgery is not an option, our Interventional Radiology team offers Yttrium-90 Hepatic Artery Infusion, Hepatic Artery Embolization and Radio-Frequency Ablation to treat multiple types of cancers in the liver. For patients with liver cancer who are not eligible for liver transplant, we will work to treat your liver cancer and help you become transplant eligible. For patients with liver disease who fail medical management of ascites or gastroentestinal bleeding, our team regularly performs Transjugular Intrahepatic Porto Systemic Shunt (TIPS procedure) and surgical shunt.
For patients with advanced cancer of the liver and pancreas, cutting edge clincal trials are available, or are in the start up phase.
Each patient's care plan is discussed in depth at our bi-weekly multi-disciplinary care conference with surgeons, radiologists, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists.
