During the last decade minimal invasive approach progressed in all sectors of abdominal surgery. Technological improvements allowed to perform more complex procedures laparoscopically with increased safety. The implementation of pre-, per- and postoperative protocols with an adaptation of surgical, anesthetic and analgesia methods and the patient's involvement in the healing process led to enhanced recovery after surgery. The centralization of complex esophageal and pancreatic surgery established the CHU of Liège as a tertiary referral institution for complex oncological surgery thanks to a large cooperation with regional hospitals.
