Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) Pathology

The Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) Pathology team supports the Christchurch Hospital HPB service, receiving specimens from the liver, gallbladder, biliary tree and pancreas. 

Specimens range from biliary tract brushings, endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration samples and endoscopic biopsies, up to complex surgical resections of liver and pancreas. 

Our Pathologists also participate in the weekly HPB cancer multi-disciplinary meeting where local and external pathology samples are reviewed.
