Liver cancer

The liver is an essential organ in the human body. The goal of any surgery related to the liver is to preserve the maximum functional capacity of the liver. Patients with complete liver removal are unable to survive without liver transplantation.

Our Offerings

  • Minimally Invasive and Robotic Liver Resections: Minimally invasive liver resection surgery is increasingly performed worldwide due to its several benefits. The advantages of minimally invasive liver resections include reduced perioperative risk, reduced pain and scarring, fewer days of hospital stay, and improved patient satisfaction. The minimally invasive liver resection procedure includes both laparoscopic and robotic surgeries. Laparoscopic surgery involves using a laparoscope to visualize the affected part of the liver for resection. Robotic surgery involves an endoscope, a control console, and robotic arms. The surgeons recommend liver resection surgeries to remove cancerous and non-cancerous tumors of the liver.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation: Radiofrequency ablation is an alternative technique to destroy the liver tumor when the tumor cannot be removed through conventional surgery. The procedure involves the ultrasound-guided insertion of the probe into the tumor and damaging it by passing an electrical current into the probe.
  • Chemoembolization: Chemoembolization is the process of delivering chemicals to destroy or block the arteries that directly feed the tumor. There are various chemoembolization procedures, such as trans-arterial chemoembolization (injecting one or more drugs directly into the arteries supplying blood to the tumor) and drug-eluting bead chemoembolization (placing tiny beads containing chemotherapy drugs into the arteries). The procedure is used for treating liver cancers that are not treated with ablation or surgery.
  • Complex Open Liver Resections: An open liver resection removes a part of the liver or the entire liver. If some part of the liver is removed, it returns to its original size. However, the patient requires liver transplantation if the complete liver is resected. Liver resection is performed in liver cancers such as hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma.
  • Hepatic Arterial Infusion Chemotherapy: Hepatic arterial infusion pump chemotherapy is the treatment of last resort for patients with primary and secondary liver cancer. In this procedure, chemotherapy drugs are continuously infused directly into the liver through an infusion pump.
