Pancreas, Liver & Gastrointestinal Surgery
The Division of Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary & Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery at the University of Michigan cares for diseases of the pancreas, liver, and biliary tree, as well as the stomach, small bowel, and large bowel (colon and rectum).
The surgeons in this Division have significant experience managing both benign and malignant diseases of these organs, including management of gallbladder disease and complex biliary reconstruction. Faculty in this Division have particular expertise in the management of liver and pancreas tumors, pancreatic cysts, and cancer of the stomach, colon, and rectum, and are skilled in open and minimally invasive surgical techniques – both laparoscopic and robotic approaches.Our multi-disciplinary team will evaluate each patient to determine the optimal treatment strategy for a given individual's situation, and will coordinate all aspects of their care.
Ground-breaking research is also being performed by faculty within the Division of Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary & Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery, focused on identification of biomarkers and novel targets for treating pancreatic cancer and metastatic colon cancer to the liver. These research efforts fuel the development of clinical trials focused on identification of more efficacious therapies for the treatment of these difficult diseases.
