Patient Care

Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery


Introduction
 

The Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, a key department of Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center, has been focusing on the prevention and treatment of hepatobiliary malignancies since the foundation of the former Tumor Hospital of Southern China (now called Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center) in 1964. This department has a long history of conducting primary liver cancer research in China. Also, it is among the earliest clinical units performing liver resection to treat liver cancer in China since 1965. Due to an increasing number of hepatobiliary malignancies, the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery was separated from Abdominal Surgery Department and became an independent clinical department in 1998.



Diagnosis and Treatment

 
The Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery has been dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of cancers of liver, biliary tract, and pancreas for decades, and has a special focus on liver cancer research. There are more than 1500 newly diagnosed primary liver cancer patients in our cancer center each year. For liver cancer patients, the complexity of cancer staging-treatment systems and underlining liver diseases requires the input from various experts skilled in different medical specialties. In the Department of Hepatobiliary Surgery, cancer treatment is available through multidisciplinary teams including surgeon, radiologist, hepatologist, and chemotherapy physician. They work together to make sure that every patient’s treatment plan can be well managed based on the principle of individualization.
