Surgical Gastroenterology is a branch of surgery that deals with conditions of the digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum), liver, pancreas, and biliary tract (gallbladder and bile ducts). Surgeons in this field diagnose and treat various gastrointestinal disorders through surgical interventions.
Hepato-Biliary Pancreatic Surgery involves surgical procedures on the liver, bile ducts, gallbladder, and pancreas. Surgeons in this field treat conditions such as liver tumors, bile duct stones, gallbladder diseases, and pancreatic cancer through various surgical techniques.
Treatment of Liver Cancers may involve a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. Surgical options for liver cancer include liver resection (removal of part of the liver), liver transplant, and ablation techniques (such as radiofrequency or microwave ablation) to destroy tumors.
Pancreatic Resections refer to surgical procedures that involve the removal of part or all of the pancreas. These surgeries are commonly performed to treat pancreatic cancer, chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic cysts, and other pancreatic disorders. Pancreatic resections can be complex procedures and may involve the Whipple procedure, distal pancreatectomy, or total pancreatectomy.
Many surgeries in these fields can be performed using minimally invasive techniques such as laparoscopy or robotic surgery. Minimally invasive approaches offer benefits such as smaller incisions, reduced pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery. However, not all patients are suitable candidates for minimally invasive procedures, and the choice of surgical approach depends on factors such as the patient's condition and the complexity of the surgery.
Like any surgical procedure, surgeries in these fields carry risks such as bleeding, infection, blood clots, adverse reactions to anesthesia, and damage to surrounding organs or tissues. The specific risks depend on the type of surgery, the patient's overall health, and other individual factors. Surgeons take steps to minimize these risks and closely monitor patients before, during, and after surgery.
