Non-Transplant Hepatobiliary Surgery

The Transplant Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center provides state-of-the-art care for patients with non-transplant hepatobiliary disease (liver, bile duct and gallbladder-related). Transplant surgeons use advanced techniques to treat hepatobiliary conditions and disorders, such as minimally invasive (laparoscopic) and open surgery, along with other specialized procedures. Treatment areas of special emphasis include:

  • Surgery for malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous) diseases of the liver including laparoscopic liver resections
  • Surgery of gallbladder and bile duct for benign and malignant disease, including laparoscopic bile duct injuries and narrowing, and bile duct stones that cannot be removed with a flexible endoscope (lighted tube introduced through the mouth)
  • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
  • Portal decompressive procedures for portal hypertension (elevated pressure within the liver) or bleeding varices (enlarged veins in the gastrointestinal tract that bleed due to portal hypertension)
  • Chemoembolization (targeted chemotherapy to starve and shrink a tumor by blocking its blood supply)
  • Radiofrequency ablation (using heat and radio waves to destroy tumor cells)
  • Intra-arterial infusion pumps (timed release of chemotherapy, via a pump implanted in the artery, to target liver cancer that cannot be surgically removed)
  • Local (targeted) and systemic (treating the whole system) chemotherapy
