There are surgeons who are able to do a resection when the tumor, usually a Klatskins at that location, involves the portal vein. Please consider getting a second opinion. I had a successful resection, including part of my portal vein, with clear margins 4 years ago at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington Mass. The surgeon, an amazing and wonderful human being, was Dr Roger Jenkins.

781-744-2500.

I believe this surgery is now also being done at other major cancer centers that have experience with Cholangio. The experience part is key!

Courage!

Peter
