Hepatobiliary surgery is used to treat disorders of the liver, bile ducts, and gallbladder. Disorders include congenital abnormalities, inflammations, traumatic injuries, gallstones, and benign and malignant tumors. During hepatobiliary surgery, the surgeon removes the unwanted masses, such as gallstones or cancerous parts of hepatobiliary organs.
Hepatobiliary surgery may be performed laparoscopically and has many of the benefits of other laparoscopic surgeries. This minimally invasive procedure provides patients with shorter hospitalization, a faster recovery, smaller scars, and less post-operative pain
