Upper abdominal surgery

The research in Upper abdominal surgery is focused on four main areas; esophageal and gastric cancer, bariatric surgery, hepatic surgery, and biliary- and pancreatic surgery.

  • Esophageal and Gastric Cancer
    • In the field of esophageal- and gastric cancer, we study the use of PET-MRI for loco-regional evaluation of esophageal cancer and the use of micro dialysis to identify early ischemia in the gastric tube. 

  • Bariatric Surgery
    • In bariatric surgery, we have three main areas of research; surgical technique, postoperative changes in gastrointestinal physiology and long term results. 

  • Hepatic Surgery
    • In hepatic surgery we have focused on defining the possible risk following liver resection induced by pre-operative chemotherapy.

  • Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery
    • The biliary-pancreatic group has focused on surgery for gall stones, perioperative cholangiography.and quality of life.
