Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) surgery is a specialized field of surgery that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, pancreas, gallbladder, and bile ducts. The HPB system plays a critical role in the digestion and metabolism of food, as well as the removal of waste and toxins from the body. Some of the conditions that may require HPB surgery include: Pancreatic cancer: Surgery may be required to remove all or part of the pancreas in cases of pancreatic cancer. Gallstones: Surgery may be required to remove the gallbladder in cases of gallstones, which can cause severe pain and other complications. Liver tumors: Surgery may be required to remove tumors in the liver, which can be cancerous or non-cancerous. Bile duct cancer: Surgery may be required to remove the bile duct in cases of bile duct cancer, which is a rare but aggressive form of cancer. Pancreatitis: Surgery may be required to remove part of the pancreas in cases of chronic or severe pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas. HPB surgery is a highly specialized field that requires extensive training and expertise. HPB surgeons may use advanced techniques, such as laparoscopic and robotic surgery, to perform complex procedures with minimal incisions and faster recovery times. Treatment approaches may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these approaches, depending on the type and stage of the disease. Dr. Antoine Stockhammer was formerly an accredited physician at Clinique Bois-Cerf and Clinique Cecil.
