Transplant / Hepatobiliary Surgery

Diseases of the kidney, liver, gallbladder, biliary tract and pancreas (HPB) are becoming increasingly common and their management is complex.

Patients with these conditions should be managed in a multidisciplinary team consisting of specialists in the areas of hepatology, surgery, interventional radiology, diagnostic radiology, gastroenterology, medical oncology, radiation oncology and support services provided by social workers, dieticians, care coordinators and specialty-trained staff.

Dr. Qasim Chaudhry specializes in adult and pediatric kidney transplants at Iowa Methodist Medical Center.
