The Derby Pancreato-Biliary Unit offers laparoscopic (keyhole) removal of the gallbladder for gallstone disease and has a track record with one the highest number nationally.
Patients that are admitted with symptomatic stones or mild pancreatitis, and who fit within a selected criterion, are offered an expedited (under 2 weeks ‘hot gallbladder’ service) operation to prevent further re-admissions and complications of gallstones.
We offer advanced level management for severe acute pancreatitis which is a life threatening benign inflammatory condition of the pancreas most often caused by gallstones. The Derby Pancreato-Biliary Unit offers complex management of this condition, requiring different modalities which include surgical, radiological and endoscopic intervention.
