Την ίδια χρονιά πήγε στο Πανεπιστήμιο της Ουψάλα στη Σουηδία, όπου και ολοκλήρωσε master στη φυσιολογία του ήπατος. Εκεί ξεκίνησε και τη διδακτορική του διατριβή με γενικό θέμα " μεταμόσχευση ήπατος σε επίμυες ". Κατόπιν επέστρεψε στην Ελλάδα, όπου και υπηρέτησε τη στρατιωτική του θητεία. Το 1998 πραγματοποίησε τον υποχρεωτικό χρόνο υπηρεσίας υπαίθρου. Το 1999 υπηρέτησε ως ειδικευόμενος στη Χειρουργική Κλινική Μεταμοσχεύσεων του Αριστοτελείου Πανεπιστημίου. Τη χρονιά αυτή ολοκλήρωσε και υπερασπίστηκε τη διδακτορική του διατριβή για την οποία βαθμολογήθηκε με " άριστα ".

Στο τέλος της ίδιας χρονιάς επέστρεψε πίσω στην Ελλάδα.

Ο χειρουργός Διονύσης Βροχίδης έχει εκτελέσει περισσότερες από 3500 επεμβάσεις ύστερα από την αποφοίτησή του από την Ιατρική Σχολή. Περίπου 1500 από αυτές αφορούν στο ήπαρ, στα χοληφόρα, στο πάγκρεας και στις μεταμοσχεύσεις. Επιπλέον, έχει δημοσιεύσει ή ανακοινώσει σε επιστημονικά συνέδρεια πάνω από 200 ερευνητικές εργασίες. Έχει λάβει από το πανεπιστήμιο Brown 5 τιμητικές διακρίσεις για τη συνεισφορά του στην εκπαίδευση των φοιτητών ιατρικής και των ειδικευόμενων χειρουργικής. Τέλος, συμμετέχει σε 25 περίπου επιστημονικές εταιρείες.

Έχει διατελέσει Assistant Instructor in Surgery στο πανεπιστήμιο Brown, RI, USA, καθώς και πανεπιστημιακός επιστημονικός συνεργάτης της Χειρουργικής Κλινικής Μεταμοσχεύσεων του Αριστοτελείου Πανεπιστημίου Θεσσαλονίκης. Έχει ιδιωτεύσει ως χειρουργός ήπατος-χοληφόρων-παγκρέατος στη Γενική Κλινική Θεσσαλονίκης από το 2008 έως το 2014.

A systematic review of the safety and efficacy of hepatopancreatoduodenectomy for biliary and gallbladder cancers

Objectives To review the evidence on the safety and efficacy of hepatopancreatoduodenectomy for biliary and gallbladder cancers. Methods Medline and EMBASE were systematically searched for papers describing hepatopancreatoduodenectomy in patients with biliary and gallbladder cancers. Results...

Diagnostic strategy and timing of intervention in infected necrotizing pancreatitis: an international expert survey and case vignette study

Lung ultrasonography as a direct measure of evolving respiratory dysfunction and disease severity in patients with acute pancreatitis

A wait‐and‐see strategy with subsequent self‐expanding metal stent on demand is superior to prophylactic bypass surgery for unresectable periampullary cancer

Background A patient with unresectable periampullary malignancy found at laparotomy has traditionally received a prophylactic double bypass (biliary and duodenal), associated with considerable morbidity. With modern endoscopic treatments, a surgical bypass has become questionable. This study ...

Efficacy of radiofrequency ablation compared with transarterial chemoembolization for the treatment of recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma: a comparative survival analysis

Background This study aims to assess if radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has any oncological superiority over transarterial chemoembolization(TACE) on post‐hepatectomy recurrence. Methods From 2002 to 2011, 60.15% of 823 patients developed recurrence after hepatectomy for HCC. One hundred and ...

A systematic review of contralateral liver lobe hypertrophy after unilobar selective internal radiation therapy with Y90

Early trends in serum phosphate and creatinine levels are associated with mortality following major hepatectomy

Prior inpatient admission increases the risk of post‐operative infection in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery

Background Hepatobiliary and pancreatic (HPB) operations have a high incidence of post‐operative nosocomial infections. The aim of the present study was to determine whether hospitalization up to 1 year before HPB surgery is associated with an increased risk of post‐operative infection, ...

Cost variation in a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and the association with outcomes across a single health system: implications for standardization and improved resource utilization

Background Payers and regulatory bodies are increasingly placing emphasis on cost containment, quality/outcome measurement and transparent reporting. Significant cost variation occurs in many operative procedures without a clear relationship with outcomes. Clear cost‐benefit associations will ...

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and gallbladder cancer: distinguishing molecular profiles to guide potential therapy

Background Chemotherapy regimens for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and gallbladder adenocarcinoma (GC) remain interchangeable; however, response rates are frequently suboptimal. Biomarkers from ICC and GC patients were interrogated to identify actionable differences with potential ...

Missing the obvious: psychosocial obstacles in Veterans with hepatocellular carcinoma

Background Socioeconomic disparities in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) influence medical treatment. In addition to socioeconomic barriers, the Veteran population suffers from significant psychosocial obstacles. This study identifies the social challenges that Veterans face while ...

Characterization of a porcine model for associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for a staged hepatectomy

Background Publications using the ALPPS (associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for a staged hepatectomy) procedure have demonstrated a future liver remnant growth of 40–160% in only 6–9 days. The present study aimed to develop and describe the first large animal model of ...

Post‐embolization syndrome as an early predictor of overall survival after transarterial chemoembolization for hepatocellular carcinoma

Background Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the most common treatment for patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Post‐embolization syndrome (PES) is a common post‐TACE complication. The goal of this study was to evaluate PES as an early predictor of the long‐...
