Obstructive jaundice refers to the yellowing of the skin and eyes due to elevated levels of bilirubin in the blood caused by the obstruction of the bile ducts. The liver normally produces bile, which is responsible for digesting food and fats. This bile is usually secreted into the gallbladder and then transported to the duodenum through the bile ducts when needed for digestion. Dr. Yasser Al-Basatiny specializes in obstructive jaundice surgery using the latest techniques and has over 30 years of experience.
