About The Liver and HPB Unit

The Wellington Hospital hosts one of the largest private liver and HPB units in the UK treating common and complex liver, pancreas and biliary diseases. A significant number of renowned specialists work within our unit and our multidisciplinary approach is key.

 

Surgeons, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, radiologists, oncologists, radiotherapists, nuclear medicine physicians and pathologists collaborate closely to tailor a care plan to your specific condition and needs. Highly experienced nursing staff, clinical nurse specialists, pain management specialists, dieticians and physiotherapists all contribute to our multidisciplinary approach.

 

All of this ultimately translates into exceptional care and safety for our patients.

A comprehensive approach to care

The liver is one of the largest organs in the body and the only organ that can completely regenerate itself. 7 in 10 people with liver or pancreatic disease do not know they have a condition because for many the first indication of a problem is when the disease is quite advanced as the early signs are often not obvious.

Providing a second opinion

There are many reasons why you could be considering a second opinion including you are not confident that the correct diagnosis has been made, you still have unanswered questions or your condition has returned following treatment. It's best to get a second opinion soon after a condition or problem is diagnosed but, even if you've already started treatment, it's not too late to get another opinion.
 

Getting an expert diagnosis

Our consultants meet weekly to discuss patient cases. With one of the most established MDTs in the private sector, in our multidisciplinary team meeting our clinicians scrutinise evidence, review images and debate diagnosis and most appropriate treatment options for you.

 

Your case will be reviewed by a team that includes surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, histopathologists and clinical nurse specialists.

Patients who are referred to us are often sick with complicated or advanced disease. It is very reassuring for them to know our consultant hepatologists and surgeons will assess your condition, supported by a dedicated team of interventional radiologists, anaesthetists, clinical nurse specialists which means our patients receive the best possible care.
