        Some people with cholangiocarcinoma are unable to be cured because their tumor is either inoperable or has spread. These patients can develop blockages of the bile ducts or intestines causing jaundice, severe itching, nimage1-15ausea and/or vomiting. Palliative surgery or endoscopic procedures may be able to provide relief of symptoms. We will be discussing the role of biliary bypass and stenting for bile duct blockages as well the role of surgery and stenting for intestinal blockages. Dr. Scott Celinski is a surgical oncologist who specializes in treating complex cancers of the liver and pancreas. He currently serves as the Director of the Pancreatic Cancer Research and Treatment Center at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX. His earned his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine and performed his residency in General Surgery at George Washington University. He completed fellowships in Surgical Oncology and Hepatobiliary Surgery (at the University of Pittsburgh) and Critical Care (at George Washington University).

            This program focused on the non-operative treatment of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Over the past 5 years, new technology has allowed much higher doses of radiation to be given safely. These doses are capable of ablating the tumor and preventing it from causing liver failure and death, leading to much longer survival and a realistic chance for cure. Results from MD Anderson demonstrate outcomes comparable to surgical resection.
