Hepato Pancreato Biliary Surgery

Providing the best services for patients is our goal.

Hepato Pancreato Biliary Surgery

This department provides comprehensive treatment for diseases related to liver, pancreas and biliary system. It is first exclusive department in India to provide both Robotic & Laparoscopic surgeries to various diseases like Gall stones, Bile duct stones, Choledochalcyst, Hydatid cyst, Acute & Chronic pancreatitis, Pseudocyst including cancers of liver, pancreas and gall bladder.

This centre has the distinction of being the first in the world to perform totally laparoscopic Whipple’s operation, also called pancreaticoduodenectomy for pancreatic cancer. Since then, this department has performed one of the largest numbers of laparoscopic Whipple’s procedures in the world. With liver transplantation emerging to be standard a care for chronic liver disease, GEM is currently the only centre to offer laparoscopic donor hepatectomy in the country. This reduces the risk associated with the donor surgery, the live person who donates a part of the liver enabling early recovery.
