Endoscopy for Pancreatic, Bile Duct & Gallbladder Conditions

Endoscopy for Pancreatic, Gallbladder & Bile Duct Conditions

Endoscopy is any number of minimally invasive procedures that allow doctors to look inside the digestive tract. Endoscopic procedures help doctors diagnose and treat conditions of the pancreas, gallbladder and biliary tree.

The main endoscopic procedures used for the pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts include:

  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) used to get a better look at the pancreas and bile ducts, take tissue samples for biopsy, drain cysts and deliver medicine directly to organs.
  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) used to see inside the main bile duct shared by the pancreas and gallbladder and take tissue samples for biopsy. ERCP can also be used to treat blockages and stones lodged inside this bile duct.

To schedule an endoscopic procedure at DHI, call (813) 615-7557.
