Liver & Spleen Surgery

Liver Lobectomy
In this surgery, a diseased portion of the liver is removed. We use stapling devices to minimize bleeding and decrease surgery time.

Porto-Systemic Shunt Repair
Porto-systemic shunts are a congenital condition in which blood from the small intestines, colon, or spleen bypasses the liver. Surgery is performed to close off the shunting vessel and redirect the blood back to the liver.

Bile Duct Surgery
This surgery may include removal of a diseased gall bladder, removal of a stone from the bile duct, or diversion of bile flow from the gall bladder directly to the intestine.

Splenectomy
This is a common procedure undertaken usually to treat a mass on the spleen. The whole spleen is removed. We use ligating and dividing stapling devices for this procedure, which significantly decrease surgical time.

“Barney could not have had better care or felt more love than he did with his visits to see his friends at Riverbend. He always got the royal treatment!”

“Thank you for providing Gus with excellent service and attention over the past year. All of you have been extremely kind, patient and knowledgeable. Truly appreciated!”

Cori, West Springfield

“How could so many awesome people work under one roof? I guess it starts at the top. Years ago when David left Rowley, it was a no-brainer to follow him to Hadley.”
