Different types of Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary surgeries

Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary surgeries

Laparoscopic Subtotal Cholecystectomy: 

This laparoscopic procedure is a safe and recognized approach for the treatment of symptomatic gallstone disease. Further, it is used for difficult cholecystectomy in order to reduce serious vascular and bile duct injuries. Dr. Samrat Jankar is highly skilled in this procedure and has successfully handled several complex cases.

Most people undergoing Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy are discharged from the hospital the same day, depending on their overall health. You will need around 2 to 3 days to return to your normal activities.


Laparoscopic CBD Exploration: 

Laparoscopic Common Bile Duct Exploration is an effective and safe procedure used to investigate if something like a stone is obstructing the flow of bile from your liver and gallbladder to your intestine.


If there is a blockage, the bile will back up into the liver and cause jaundice, or the bile duct may become infected and require immediate surgery.

Laparoscopic Cystogastrostomy: 

This is a treatment for pancreatic pseudocysts, which are a collection of leaked pancreatic fluids. People suffering from pancreatic pseudocysts may experience vomiting, nausea, stomach ache, fever or swollen belly.


Laparoscopic Cystogastrostomy is a minimally invasive surgery that drains the pseudocysts using advanced laparoscopic techniques. The surgeon will connect the pseudocysts and the nearby digestive organ, stomach, or small intestine to allow the pseudocysts to drain through that organ.


Undergoing this procedure through laparoscopy minimizes hospitalization and recovery time. Also, it gives a better cosmetic appearance and decreases post-surgery pain.


Laparoscopic Hydatid Cyst Surgery: 

The hydatid disease is a serious disease, potentially lethal, caused by the larvae of Echinococcus granulosus. The larval form of the tapeworm lodges itself in the body, where they form a fluid-filled sac known as a hydatid cyst. 


The cysts can grow in size up to 5 to 10 cm or more, and it contains immature forms of the tapeworm. It is mostly found in the liver. During laparoscopic hydatid cyst surgery, the surgeon removes the cyst contents without contaminating the patient, then sterilizes and manages the cyst cavity using appropriate technique.


Nowadays, minimally invasive methods like laparoscopy are preferred over open surgery because they cause fewer complications, reduce morbidity and recurrence rates and require a shorter hospital stay.


Open HPB Cancer Surgeries: 

Hepato-pancreatic-biliary cancers include cancer of the bile duct, gall bladder, and pancreas. Surgery is one of the primary modalities to treat cancer. Dr. Samrat Jankar is a highly experienced HPB surgeon who has managed many open HPB cancer surgeries with a favorable outcome.


Success rate of hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery 

Surgical methods for hepato-pancreato-biliary disorders have a success rate that varies depending on the stage of the disease. When performed by an experienced and proficient surgeon in premium healthcare centers like SUHRC Symbiosis University Hospital & Research Centre, Pune, these treatments have a low risk of complications.


Precautions to be taken after hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery

Dr. Samrat Jankar recommends following a healthy regimen after HPB surgery to help recover faster.

  • After undergoing the procedure, you do not require any special care.
  • Consume a well-balanced, protein-rich diet.
  • Cut down on excessive fats and sugar.
