Possible Complications after Hepatobiliary Surgery

After your hepatobiliary surgery, we will watch closely for signs of any complications so that we can treat them quickly. The most likely issues are medication side effects, wound infection, bleeding after surgery, blood clots in your legs (thrombophlebitis), bile leaks, pneumonia, and fluid around your lungs, although even these are not common in most people who undergo hepatobiliary surgery and procedures. Our hepatobiliary team will explain to you and your family the risks - and benefits - of treatment so you are fully informed.
