Liver surgery and bile duct surgery encompasses some of the most challenging surgical operations that could be performed in the abdomen and possibly in the human body. Liver and bile duct pathology varies from congenital to benign and malignant disease.
The anatomy of this region is extremely complex and highly variable. There are many normal antomical variations of the arterial venous and biliary (bile duct) systems. Understanding these variations and how they affect surgical decisions before and during surgery is critical. Many years of dedicated, specialized training are required in order to gain adequate expertise to operate comfortably in this area of the body. In addition, extensive experience in a high-volume liver surgery hospital and recurrent continuing medical education is recommended.
