Conditions affecting the pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and liver can present complex challenges. An accurate diagnosis can be difficult and/or delayed, since symptoms are often late to appear. Treatment of the body’s hepato-pancreatico-biliary system demands a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach for the best possible outcomes. At NorthShore, we employ sophisticated surgical techniques and/or the latest medical therapies—all tailored to the unique needs of each patient.
Our pancreatico-biliary and liver disease program cares for patients suffering from a wide variety of diseases and disorders.
The wide array of conditions we treat include:
The reputation of NorthShore’s dedicated hepato-pancreatico-biliary surgeons extends far beyond our community. We continually draw patients throughout Illinois and the Midwest seeking our expertise. Skilled in performing state-of-the-art laparoscopic and robotic pancreas and liver surgery (or resection), our surgical specialists use these advanced techniques whenever possible to decrease pain and speed recovery. Committed to helping patients avoid major surgery, we stay abreast of cutting-edge minimally invasive innovations. For the treatment of pancreatic cancer, we are one of the leading health systems performing both laparoscopic and robotic Whipple procedures (pancreaticoduodenectomies). Our surgeons have achieved excellent outcomes with this complex procedure that requires highly specialized training not found in every hospital system.
Patients with pancreatic or liver conditions greatly benefit from NorthShore’s multidisciplinary team of specialists, including hepatologists, interventional gastroenterologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists.
