Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery

About Our Hepatobiliary & Pancreatic Surgery Program

Hepatobiliary or pancreatic surgery is a complex area of general surgery that requires an experienced team for successful treatment. Accurate diagnosis is essential and requires gastroenterologists skilled in endoscopic ultrasound and interventional endoscopy. The surgery depends on experienced surgeons with enough volume to maintain skills and avoid complications. Smooth post operative recovery demands a dedicated, competent critical care team. All of these are available at Jersey Shore where liver and pancreatic cancers are routinely treated. Our team also provides surgical and medical treatment of non-malignant diseases of the pancreas, liver, gall bladder, and bile ducts.
