About the Hepatobiliary Transplant Program
Hepatobiliary surgery involves surgery of the liver and biliary system, including the bile ducts and gallbladder. At UC Health, cutting-edge hepatology care brings experience and the latest in research to the treatment of liver conditions including cancer, hepatitis, HIV, cirrhosis, fatty liver, hemochromatosis and others. Our surgeons have trained at some of the world’s most prestigious institutions specializing in this area.
Our surgeons here at UC Health are all trained specifically in aspects of hepatobiliary surgery including organ diseases, cancer and non-cancerous disorders and rare metabolic problems associated with the liver and bile duct. These kinds of conditions can really benefit from the advanced skills of UC Health’s hepatobiliary surgeons.
Patients with both HIV and Hepatitis C, or other multiple infections, face a higher risk of complications from surgical procedures. Because UC Health physicians have worked extensively with co-infected patients, they are experts in managing these risks factors to achieve results.
A Strong Team Supporting Patient Care
Hepatologists (liver specialists) and surgeons work closely on the most effective treatment approach for each patient. As with transplant procedures, patients benefit from access to the resources and research of the UC Health system, and the multi-disciplinary team approach to care. The hepatobiliary surgical staff at UC Health works with the patient’s referring physician to provide a seamless patient care experience.
