Liver, Pancreas & Hepatobiliary Cancers
The Liver Center at Hahnemann University Hospital provides care for patients with a wide variety of liver diseases, including liver cancer, tumors and masses; hereditary hemochromatosis; hepatitis; Wilson’s disease; non-alcoholic steatohepatitis; alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency; Budd-Chiari syndrome; and primary scherosing cholangitis.
The liver specialists at Hahnemann are dedicated to caring for the complex needs of patients with liver disease. We provide adult and pediatric medicine, surgery, transplant and oncology care.
Much of the time, liver cancer doesn’t start in the liver but has spread from another cancer in the body. These tumors that have metastasized to the liver are known as secondary tumors. Our surgeons are experienced in advanced surgeries to remove tumors from the liver, including:
- Liver resection
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Minimally invasive surgery
Hahnemann’s oncologists also work to treat pancreatic cancer with help from complex surgical procedures. These include:
- The Whipple procedure (pancreatoduodenectomy)
- Total pancreatectomy
- Distal pancreatectomy
- Surgical bypass
- Stent insertion
