How are choledochal cysts treated?
Choledochal cysts are usually removed with surgery. A pediatric surgeon removes the cyst and surrounding tissues and reconstructs the bile duct using a section of the small intestine.
Why choose Children’s Colorado for treatment of choledochal cysts?
At Children’s Colorado, our surgeons are trained in both liver transplant surgery and pediatric surgery, which sets our pediatric hepatobiliary surgery program apart from many other hospitals. We’ve also diagnosed and treated more children with choledochal cysts than any other hospital in the region.
Our multidisciplinary team is made of pediatric ultrasound technicians, nurses, surgeons, gastroenterologists, hepatologists and anesthesiologists who are experts in caring for kids. We understands children and their needs and create customized care plans that ensure the best treatment with less pain, shorter recovery times and fewer missed school days.
