Liver resection is surgical procedure, performed to remove a liver, partially. Liver resection is also called as hepatectomy. The operation is usually needed for some kinds of cancers that are related to the liver and for metastatic colorectal cancer. Only the unhealthy part, which is affected with the cancer, of the liver is removed, leaving the healthy part as it is. In case the liver, which is right side, has to be removed, the attached gallbladder has also been taken out.

After the liver has been cut and removed, the liver starts growing back to compensate the removed part and it is usually determined by the experienced surgeon.

The ablation helps the masses to be destroyed with the help of the heat. Sometimes two operations would be required for extensive cancers present in the liver and also in cases that the tumors are present in both the lobes in the liver. After the first liver resection operation, the liver is allowed to grow back to the normal size and then the second operation is conducted.

Post procedure treatment continues with radiation treatment or chemotherapy.
