Liver Surgery

Liver Surgery may be performed by a 

General Surgeon

or 

Internal Medicine Surgeon

. The liver is located in the upper abdomen and is the largest solid organ in the body. It has many important complex functions, including helping the digestion of fat, converting sugar into energy, and removing waste from the blood. A

Liver biopsy

may be required for assessment. Benign tumours of the liver, such as

cysts

,

adenomas

and

haemangiomas

, can be treated by 

liver resection

. If the location of a benign tumour is superficial and small in size, the operation can be performed

laparoscopically

. A variety of diseases can lead to end-stage

liver disease

. In such cases a

liver transplantation

may be the only option.
