Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) &Stomach Cancer Programs
Message from James Davis, M.D., FACS – Chief of Surgery, UCSF Fresno
Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) surgery is surgery of the liver, pancreas and biliary system. Stomach cancer (aka gastric cancer) surgery is where a portion or all of the stomach is removed.
We have created a program where a team of specialists care for and create an individualized plan for each patient. Our team includes physicians with various specialties to ensure patients are seen by a provider specializing in their diagnosis. In addition to our physicians, our team based treatment includes: nutritional, pain management and surgical options. We recognize the critical part a patient’s primary health provider plays in the coordination of disease treatment and work to ensure they are kept up to date on each patient’s progress throughout their treatment. Together, we have a unifying and common goal: To collaborate and coordinate in order to provide each patient the highest level of specialized care and restored health.
We are very pleased to have the Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) surgery program here in the Central Valley. The program allows those in our community who find themselves needing HPB surgery to remain home for treatment. Our surgeons are fellowship trained and board certified in their field of practice. You have the added comfort that at one of the most difficult times in your life you are just a short drive from home.
