The term "hepatobiliary" refers to the liver, the gallbladder, bile ducts or bile. Disease of the liver and biliary system may be caused by viral, bacterial, or parasitic infections, neoplasia, toxic chemicals, alcohol consumption, poor nutrition, metabolic disorders, and cardiac failure. The incidence of liver disease continues to grow in the United States largely due to an aging population, obesity, and the increasing number of patients diagnosed with hepatitis C. Because of this, the interdisciplinary Hepatobiliary Program at White Plains Hospital is answering the need for advanced liver care.
Common conditions treated:
- Liver failure
- Liver cancer
- Liver tumors
- Bile duct constriction
- Gallbladder cancer
- Cysts in the liver, bile ducts or pancreas
- Pancreatic tumors
Diagnosis & Treatment
The Hospital utilizes FibroScan Technology, which measures the stiffness or elasticity of the liver, to assess the condition of the liver and better inform physicians of proper liver disease treatment following diagnosis. A multidisciplinary liver disease team, consisting of gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and surgereons, works alongside medical and radiation oncologists to tailor individual liver disease care plans which may include surgery, ablation and embolization procedures, advanced endoscopy and medical and radiation oncology.
