Biliary Tumors and Injuries

Biliary surgery is most frequently performed for stones, strictures and tumors. Among the treatment options available at California Pacific include:

Resection of primary biliary neoplasms (cholangiocarcinoma
Treatment of bile duct cancer usually requires removal of the bile duct and possibly portions of the liver, gallbladder, pancreas and small intestine. After resecting the neoplasms -- either through open surgery or laparoscopically -- the surgeon reconnects the bile ducts to the small intestine for proper biliary drainage (see illustration).

Biliary Drainage Procedures
Biliary drainage procedures are performed when the bile duct becomes blocked, narrowed or injured. During surgery, continuity of the biliary tree is usually re-established via a hepaticojejunostomy.
