Advanced Surgical Procedures

In extreme cases, an “ex vivo” (outside of the patient) surgery is performed. This involves first the temporary removal of the entire liver, then surgical removal of the liver tumor, and re-transplantation of the liver back into the patient. Initially described in 1974, this ex vivo technique is regaining popularity because of advancements in liver preservation and transplant technology. It is used in only a handful of centers around the world. One such center is Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.

Alternatively, many serious conditions and complications after liver and pancreatic surgery that normally would require surgical intervention can be managed using advanced interventional radiology and endoscopic techniques, thanks to the excellent skills of our colleagues from these specialties.
