Cholangiocarcinoma Center of Excellence
We are a super-tertiary hepatobiliary speciality center and the largest dedicated cholangiocarcinoma ward in the world. We specialize in surgical intervention of bile duct cancer, hepatobiliary-pancreatic (HBP) surgical training, and research. Our surgeons and clinicians are highly skilled experts who use the most advanced medical technology to provide world class care. Our focus is providing the best care possible for our patients and we take great pride in maintaining the highest standards.
The north and northeast regions of Thailand have the highest rate of cholangiocarcinoma than elsewhere in the world and the disease is a serious public health issue for Thailand and other Mekong countries. For this reason the Cholangiocarcinoma Center of Excellence is located on the campus of Khon Kaen University and is centrally located in the northeast region of Thailand. Our aim is fighting cholangiocarcinoma and providing the best chance of survival for people suffering from the disease. We work tirelessly to expand our capabilities of providing our patients with the most effective treatment options available and the highest standard of care possible. We are also dedicated to developing the skills of surgeons by providing specialized hepatobiliary-pancreatic training for the treatment of CCA and can accommodate health care professionals from other Mekong subregion countries. Although we are able to provide the most effective treatments available, we also understand the need to find additional treatments and to improve the efficacy of current treatment methods. Through the work of our researchers we aim to advance our understanding of the disease and develop new ways to combat it.
