Leading Swiss gastrointestinal cancer surgeon discusses delicate liver cancer surgery technique that originated from Japan. Gentle resection of only liver segments with cancer present is important for preservation of as much healthy liver tissue as possible. This liver resection technique allows resection of metastatic or primary liver cancer lesions from both sides of the liver during single operation. Patients have smoother and faster postoperative recovery.
Dr. Martin Schilling prominent gastrointestinal surgeon, is one of few people who use this method of liver cancer resection in Europe. This liver cancer resection method allows better recovery and faster recovery of patients after surgery.
