Liver Surgery

At Guthrie, our liver specialists are fellowship-trained to treat a broad spectrum of liver-related conditions that cause the liver to function improperly or to stop functioning. 

Our expert surgeons are skilled in providing patients with sophisticated and innovative liver cancer surgery options. Liver cancers are classified based on whether or not they can be completely removed (resected). Depending on the size and location of the tumor, it may be removed by partial or total surgery of the liver. We will work with you to determine whether liver cancer surgery is the right treatment option for you. If surgery is recommended, it may be part of a treatment plan that includes radiation therapy, chemotherapy or other treatments.

Our liver surgeons are specially trained to treat the following liver conditions:

  • Liver cancer
  • Hepatitis
  • Polycystic liver disease
  • Acute liver failure
  • Amebic liver abscess
  • Biliary atresia
  • Cirrhosis
  • Coccidioidomycosis
  • Drug-induced cholestasis
  • Hemochromatosis
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Primary biliary cirrhosis
  • Reye syndrome
  • Sclerosing cholangitis
  • Wilson's disease
