Liver and Pancreas Surgery Program

The Liver and Pancreas Surgery Program at MUSC provides state-of-the-art treatment for patients with primary and metastatic cancers of the liver, gallbladder, bile duct and pancreas. The program also treats benign diseases including acute and chronic pancreatitis, liver and pancreas cysts, biliary strictures and bile duct injuries.

Patients receive comprehensive care from a team comprised of pancreas, hepatobiliary, and transplant surgeons, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, diagnostic radiologists, interventional radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and anesthesiologists. Our Multidisciplinary Pancreas and Liver Tumor Board and our Advanced Interventional Endoscopic and Surgical Gastroenterology Conference meet weekly to provide the highest level of collaborative and patient-centered care.

MUSC is one of the few centers nationally that performs a large number of advanced minimally-invasive liver and pancreas surgeries. We are one of a handful of centers that offers total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation for chronic pancreatitis. Hollings Cancer Center at MUSC is a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center and MUSC is a National Pancreas Foundation-designated Pancreas Center of Excellence.
