The liver is a vital organ that removes toxins from the body’s blood supply, and breaks down food to convert it to energy. To ensure the proper functioning of the liver, there is an entire specialisation of medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting the liver - Hepatology.
Hepatologists use a wide range of solutions from non-invasive treatment to surgical solutions to ensure your liver is as healthy as it can be. Discover a world of comprehensive and innovative treatment options with Mediglobe, through our extensive hepatology network all over the world.
Hepatectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing a portion of the liver. This may be necessary when there is a tumor or other disease affecting the liver, such as cirrhosis or hepatitis. The surgery is typically performed by a specialized surgeon and can be done using various techniques, including open surgery or minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. Hepatectomy is a major procedure that requires careful preoperative evaluation and postoperative care to ensure the best possible outcome for the patient. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications, which should be thoroughly discussed with a qualified healthcare provider before making a decision about undergoing hepatectomy.
A lobectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of a lobe of the lung. It is typically performed when a person has a cancerous or non-cancerous tumor, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other lung conditions that cannot be treated with medication or other non-surgical options. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and may require a hospital stay of several days. While lobectomy can be a complex procedure, it is generally safe and has a high success rate in improving a patient’s quality of life.
Laparoscopic Liver and Bile Duct Surgery
Laparoscopic Liver and Bile Duct Surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the removal of the liver or bile duct using small incisions and specialized tools. This procedure is often preferred over traditional open surgery as it offers a shorter recovery time, less pain, and fewer complications. Laparoscopic Liver and Bile Duct Surgery is commonly used to treat liver tumors, cysts, and bile duct obstructions.
