Liver & Portal Hypertension

  • Surgery for liver diseases commonly includes surgery for benign lesions like hydatid cyst surgery which is mainly done laparoscopically.
  • Liver trauma is dealt with at our centre. All facilities to deal with liver injuries are available. We have a good blood bank with all component facilities. OT also has the latest technology for liver surgery in form of CUSA, Argon beam coagulator etc.
  • Portasystemic vascular shunt procedures like splenectomy and lieno-renal shunt and other shunt procedures are being performed regularly. In cases where portal hypertension patients are not manageable by endoscopic means, the surgical procedures required in all these problems are regularly done. Oesophago gastric devascularisation is done in patients with persistent bleeding where endoscopic treatment fails or is not possible.
  • Other surgery for liver diseases mainly includes major and minor liver resections. These are done for liver cancers - both primary and metastatic. Right, Left and extended hepatectomies are being performed.
