The Section of Hepatobiliary-Pancreatic and Gastrointestinal (GI) Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine welcomes the opportunity to assist you in providing the most advanced medical care for your patients.
Founded in 1992, the section has acquired a reputation as one of the highest-volume liver and pancreas surgery units in the United States. Our surgeons have an exemplary safety record even as they perform delicate and technically demanding procedures such as the intricate Whipple procedure – the major operation for pancreatic cancer. We have also greatly increased our volume of laparoscopic surgeries for diseases of the liver, pancreas and biliary tract – especially laparoscopic liver surgery.
We work best by partnering with you in your patients' care. Please call upon us whenever we may be of service.
To make patient appointments, see our individual physician pages.
