Liver and Pancreas Surgery - Hepatobiliary system is the name refers to the diseases affecting the pancreas, liver, gallbladder and bile ducts. Cancerous tumor is the most common indication for liver surgery known as Hepatopancreaticobiliary (HPB) surgery. Certain patients with initial liver tumors can potentially be cured with this surgery. With the advances in aggressive surgery and chemotherapy in recent years, the patient outcomes with colon liver cancer specifically have improved dramatically.
Patients who have been told that their tumors cannot be treated via multidisciplinary setting are found to be actually good candidates for surgery. With better surgical techniques, imaging and chemotherapy, that patients that was previously thought not be treatable can now surgically treated with excellent results as well. The liver tumors may be metastatic or may be initial means they arise from within the liver.
The success of the tumor removal surgery majorly depends on number of factors which includes tumor location, number and distribution of the masses and the amount of liver left after the removal of tumor.
The liver surgery of its large portion is possible in some cases just because the liver left can grow to compensate for the removed part of it. However the decision of which part has to be medically removed can only be made by an experienced and professional surgeon like Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hospital.
If you are the one diagnosed with liver tumor, Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hopsital can help determine whether you would benefit from having surgery for tumor removal or not. He has extensive years of experience with tumor ablation and at Fortis Hospital, he provide state- of- the- art therapies that makes surgery more precise and minimize the damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hospital use laparoscopic techniques in treating liver and pancreas related diseases including minimally invasive pancreatic surgery, liver resection and radio frequency ablation of liver tumors.
Surgery is the only cure available for pancreatic cancer. As it is a highly complex surgery, it should be performed by the experienced and professional surgeon, Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hospital.
Ductal- adenocarcinoma is the most frequent pancreas cancerous tumor usually located at the head of the pancreas. Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortiscurrently performs 20-25 pancreatic surgery every year at Fortis Hospital. He developed strict protocol and care ways on how to manage such patients before, during and after the surgery performed.
The pancreatic surgery is the most standard care for pancreatic cancer, solid tumors in pancreas, chronic pancreatitis, pseudocysts and cysts. The worst part is that patient may experience no signs and symptoms until the cancer is quite advanced. Normally pancreatic cancer is of two types including the cancer that forms in the hormone producing cells and in the pancreas ducts, often called as Adenocarcinoma.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Liver Tumors
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) has become the tissue destruction therapy of choice for treating liver cancer for several surgeons. Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hospital performed this process by using laparoscopy technique in which tools are inserted through small holes in the abdominal wall.
RFA has been a proven technology with successful outcome where the liver tumors cannot be removed surgically. Cryoablation and Percutaneous alcohol ablation are some other forms of ablation therapy.
The procedure works with the help of ultrasound that precisely target the tumor and with the help of an electrode needle system, the radio frequency energy produces heat to destroy the tumor without harming other surrounded healthy liver tissue.
Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hospital has broad experience and performs large number of complex liver and pancreatic surgeries.
Advanced Laparoscopic GI
Many complex abdominal conditions are treated under the care of experienced surgeon Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis Hospital with advanced laparoscopic surgical procedures that are known for less pain and speedy recovery. This minimal invasive technique often used to treat the diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
Dr. Pradeep Jain Fortis has had extensive training in the highly specialized laparoscopic techniques and every year around 30-35 abdominal surgical procedures are carried out by laparoscopic techniques under his supervision.
