Hepatobiliary Surgery

This is surgery that focuses on correcting conditions and problems occurring in the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Patients with problems with their gallbladder may have upper abdominal pain and nausea. Frequently gallstones or cholecystitis, or gallbladder inflammation, is the cause. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy, or gallbladder removal, is done with small incisions and usually the operation is done as an outpatient procedure.
