Hepatobiliary cancer surgery (liver, bile ducts, gallbladder)

The hepatobiliary system refers to the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts, and how they work together to make bile. Cancer can begin in the liver (the body's largest organ). More commonly, cancer found in the liver has spread there from another part of the body.

Approximately 11,000 men and women are diagnosed with cancer of the gallbladder in the U.S. each year. The gallbladder is a small organ located under the right lobe of the liver. This cancer is often not detected until it reaches an advanced stage and causes symptoms.

Our surgical oncologists in Naperville and Elmhurst specialize in the following procedures to treat cancers that occur in the hepatobiliary system:

  • Partial and major hepatectomy (liver resection)
  • Minimally invasive liver resection
  • Radiofrequency ablation of liver tumors
  • Integrative liver therapy with interventional radiology

Our Chicagoland surgical oncology team is skilled in advanced procedures to treat liver, bile duct and gallbladder cancer.
