Liver Surgery

What is Liver Surgery?

The focus of liver surgery is the treatment of conditions affecting the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, small bowel, stomach, and esophagus. Several distinct conditions, including liver cancer and cysts, are treated through this procedure. Any anomaly in the liver is then cross-referenced with the signs of benign cyst formation. If radiological imaging supports this diagnosis, the cyst is then surgically removed (GI surgery). As required, a portion of the liver is removed during resection to treat the cyst.

We are dedicated to providing the most cutting-edge therapeutic and diagnostic methods for the treatment of pancreatic, biliary, and liver cancers. Laparoscopic surgical resection, radio-frequency ablation, trans-arterial chemo-embolization, radioactive microsphere injections, and other minimally invasive procedures are among the choices we provide. These treatments are provided by our multidisciplinary team, which consists of oncologists, radiation and interventional radiologists, and surgeons.

Liver Surgery Procedure

About Liver Surgery

Treat liver problems, there are various types of procedures. The primary liver surgeries include:

  • Liver resection is a procedure to have the tumor-bearing portion(s) of your liver removed. A tiny amount of the surrounding healthy tissue will also be removed by the surgeon when they remove the tumor. The size and location of the tumor will determine how much tissue will be removed (s).
  • With radiofrequency ablation (RFA), cancer cells are killed by being heated to extremely high temperatures.
  • Microwave ablation is done by using a thin needle to transmit microwaves in the liver and destroy cancer-causing cells with the rise in temperature.
  • Irreversible electroporation is a method for employing an electric current to kill cancer cells.

We will recommend the best surgery for you. You might undergo both a liver resection and an ablation of the liver. Individual liver ablation techniques, in conjunction with liver resection or both, are viable options. The treatment plan may differ for each individual.

The number of tumors that need to be removed will determine how long your surgery will last. The average surgery lasts between two and four hours, but some may go longer. Our physician or nurse will advise you on what needs to be done.
