Hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery or HPB surgery is surgery of the liver, pancreas and biliary system.
HPB surgery is normally carried out using ‘keyhole’ techniques (laparoscopic surgery). This is a less invasive type of surgery that reduces the risk of infection and provides a faster recovery time.
Occasionally, HPB surgery can be complex, depending on how severe the disease is. In these cases, you will be cared for by specially trained clinical staff at our intensive care unit.
