Liver Diseases

Liver diseases professionals provide integrated surgical and clinical treatment of malignant and benign liver diseases with particular attention to metastases from colorectal and neuroendocrine neoplasia, intra-hepatic, extra-hepatic and hilar cholangiocarcinoma (Klatskin tumor), and hepatocarcinoma.

Minimally Invasive Liver Surgery Program is active at the Gruppo San Donato for over 15 years with over 1.500 liver resections performed which led us to be recognized as an international reference center for minimally invasive liver surgery and national and international leadership center of the field.

GSD professionals apply holistic approach in patient treatment by personalizing and defining in a multidisciplinary team (hepatic surgeon, oncologist, medical hepatologist, interventional radiologist, radiotherapist) diagnostic and therapeutic process during a specific weekly meeting – Multidisciplinary HepatoBilial Meeting.
