Hepato-pancreato-biliary cancers include malignant or cancerous tumours originating in the cells of the liver, bile ducts, and gallbladder.
HPB (Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary) surgery is a subspecialty of surgery specific to benign and malignant diseases of the liver, pancreas and biliary tree. HPB surgery can be complex and requires specialized training and/or experience. TriHealth has built its HPB Surgery Program with the goal of providing state-of-the-art, high quality care for our patients and their supporting families. We are committed to providing care in a multidisciplinary fashion. This means working together with our surgeons, nurse practitioners, specialists in gastroenterology (GI), interventional radiology (IR), medical oncology, radiation oncology, genetics, nutrition and more. As a patient in the HPB Surgery Program you have access to all of these services and specialists.
HPB Surgery Program Services
- Individualized care plans for each patient
- Utilization of evidence based clinical pathways for enhanced recovery
- Multidisciplinary care via:
- Multidisciplinary Clinics (MDC): Occasionally, surgery is only one part of the treatment plan; particularly when surgery is for the treatment of cancer. Multidisciplinary clinics are designed for patients who may need additional non-surgical treatment before or after surgery. During these clinic appointments patients may see surgical and non-surgical specialists at the same time and place. This allows us to provide an integrated and comprehensive treatment plan.
- Tumor Board Conferences: Surgical decision-making often requires input from other specialists. Tumor Board Conferences are a way for all specialists involved in a patients care to come together, review the patient’s case in detail, and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
- Genetic Councilors
- Research Trials
- Wellness Programs before and after surgery
- Survivorship treatment plans
