Hepaticojejunostomy is a surgical procedure that is commonly performed at Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad to restore the flow of bile from the liver to the small intestine. It is typically done when there is a blockage or damage to the bile ducts, which can be caused by various conditions such as strictures (narrowing) of the bile ducts, bile duct injuries from previous surgeries, congenital bile duct abnormalities, or other diseases that obstruct the normal flow of bile.
The indications for Hepaticojejunostomy may vary depending on the specific condition and the extent of the bile duct obstruction. It is usually recommended when other non-surgical interventions have failed or are not feasible, and the obstruction of the bile ducts is causing symptoms such as jaundice, abdominal pain, or recurrent infections.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved with Hepaticojejunostomy. These risks may include infection, bleeding, bile leakage, injury to surrounding organs such as the liver, intestines, or blood vessels, and anesthesia-related complications. The severity and likelihood of these risks can vary depending on factors such as the patient's overall health, the complexity of the case, and the surgeon's experience and skill.
The recovery period after Hepaticojejunostomy can also vary depending on various factors. Patients may experience pain, discomfort, and swelling at the incision site, and may require pain medications for relief. The length of hospital stay may range from several days to a week, depending on the patient's condition and the extent of the surgery. During the recovery period, patients may need to follow restrictions on physical activity, such as avoiding heavy lifting or strenuous exercise, and gradually return to their normal activities under the guidance of their healthcare team.

It is crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare professional for a thorough evaluation, personalized treatment plan, and to discuss any concerns or questions regarding the procedure.
