As an HPB surgical unit we deal with several groups of patients:
Patients with cancer, also called 'malignant' disease. Cancer can affect the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and the gallbladder. If it is possible, we will do our best to remove the cancer surgically.
Patients with 'benign' (non-cancerous) conditions affecting these organs.
As part of a larger group of 'general surgeons' we deal with patients with abdominal diseases requiring emergency surgery.
Two of the team also perform kidney transplant operations.
Please click below, or on the tabs at the top of the page, to read more about these conditions and the operations to treat them.
