HPB conditions
The HPB surgical procedure will work to eliminate medical conditions such as:

Primary liver cancer:

Liver tumor removal
The most common liver tumor to metastasize in this organ is known as colorectal cancer which can be cured only after the complete surgical removal of the disease.

Another metastasizing tumor in the liver is the neuroendocrine tumor of the gastrointestinal tract.

Benign and malignant diseases of the pancreas –
Pancreatic tumors are common but the development of neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas as well as cystic tumors is also common.

Surgical removal of all pancreatic malignancies poses a cure for all the patients affected.

When the tumor is located at the head of the pancreas, a Whipple resection and a blood vessel reconstruction may be called for. You can read more about the Whipple procedure in another blog of ours.

As for the removal of tumors located in the body and tail of the pancreas, minimal techniques will be used to rid the patient of this ailment. This surgical procedure is known as distal pancreatectomy.

In many cases, patients may have to have their bile ducts reconstructed entirely. This will depend on the extent of damage that the tumor has done up until that point and whether the tumor is blocking the bile duct or not.
