Our approach to liver and bile duct surgery (hepatobiliary surgery)
Before they consider surgery, AHN doctors from a variety of specialty areas come together to decide on the best treatment option for you. The AHN philosophy is to recommend the most minimally invasive procedures to our patients whenever possible. This approach can give you a faster recovery, less trauma, and better results than conventional, large-incision surgery.
When our doctors decide that surgery is necessary, you will receive the highest quality of care. Our top-rated liver and bile duct surgeons (hepatobiliary surgeons) are experts in a wide range of procedures, including bile duct resections and liver transplantation. Also, thanks to teamwork between specialists — and our innovative technical approach — surgery is now an option for an increasing number of patients with cancer in the liver and bile ducts.
Our treatment options include:
Minimally invasive surgery
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)
Portal vein embolization (PVE)
