Liver, Pancreas and Gall Bladder Surgery
Our hepatobiliary surgeons are experts in image-guided minimally invasive surgery to treat benign masses and malignancies in the stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas and bile duct. Multidisciplinary cancer care has been shown in multiple studies to improve outcomes for cancers in the digestive system.
Dr. Christopher J. Gannon and Dr. Francis E. Rosato are among the region’s foremost hepatobiliary surgery experts and are now available for consultations and procedures in Mercer County. In the past, patients would have to travel outside of the region where Dr. Gannon and Dr. Rosato performed their surgeries. Today, they are providing a unique level of surgical expertise for patients and their referring physicians here in the greater Mercer and Bucks County area.
By using a two-attending approach to every case, an OR team specially trained in the perioperative care of our patients, the implementation of a dedicated surgical intensivist for ICU care, and clinical care pathways, we have been able to decrease operating times and overall length of stay for patients.
Because our office is located in the medical office building at the new Capital Health Medical Center - Hopewell, patients are able to make appointments to see several specialists on the same day in the same place. This arrangement also allows physicians to obtain immediate collaboration with colleagues as needed on a case-by-case basis. Program team members meet regularly to discuss and recommend the best treatment options for patients which may include participation in national and regional clinical studies.
