The Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery (HPB) Program provides state-of-the-art treatment for patients with primary and metastatic cancers of the liver, gallbladder, bile duct and pancreas. The program also treats benign disease including cysts, biliary strictures and bile duct injuries.
Hepatobiliary: Having to do with the liver plus the gallbladder, bile ducts, or bile. For example, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can be applied to the hepatobiliary system. Hepatobiliary makes sense since "hepato-" refers to the liver and "-biliary" refers to the gallbladder, bile ducts, or bile.
Physicians perform hepatobiliary imaging to evaluate disorders that affect liver cells, the ducts of the biliary system and the gallbladder. Hepatobiliary imaging is also used to help diagnose symptoms such as: abdominal pain that may be caused by a sudden inflammation of the gallbladder called cholecystitis.
Ultrasound is the least invasive radiologic modality for imaging the liver and biliary tract. Unlike computed tomographic scanning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the technique is portable, quick, and can be used to efficiently guide interventional procedures.
The surgical treatment of diseases of the gall bladder, liver and pancreas (hepatobiliary system) and oesophagus, stomach and small bowel (upper gastrointestinal tract) is performed under the care of the general surgeon who has a specialist interest in upper gastrointestinal surgery.
Hepatobiliary Disease. Hepatobiliary disease includes a heterogeneous group of diseases of the liver and biliary system caused by viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections, neoplasia, toxic chemicals, alcohol consumption, poor nutrition, metabolic disorders, and cardiac failure.
Hepatobiliary (HIDA) Scan With/Without CCK- Hepatobiliary imaging is a type of nuclear medicine imaging that helps evaluate the liver, gallbladder and the ducts that are part of the biliary system.
Hepatobiliary tumors are abnormal growths occurring on or in the liver, bile ducts, and biliary tract, the tubes that carry bile from the liver or gallbladder to the small intestine
