Liver cancer, cirrhosis of the liver and other serious, life-threatening conditions may require liver surgery to save the patient’s life. Depending on the patient’s specific condition, several different surgical procedures may be recommended to remove or replace damaged, diseased or cancerous tissue.
Some of the common liver surgery options include the following procedures:
- Liver resection – removing a portion of the liver to remove a tumor
- Laparoscopic liver surgery – minimally invasive surgical option that reduces pain, scaring and recovery time
- Partial hepatectomy – removal of a portion of the liver
- Total hepatectomy – removal of the entire liver
- Liver transplant – replacing the liver with a healthy donor’s liver
- Liver biopsy
- Surgery to repair the liver following trauma
- Biliary bypass
Each of these procedures is recommended to treat a specific condition. Seek medical care to determine which treatment will be most effective for your condition.
