Minimally Invasive Care for Organs That Aid Digestion

Used for the diagnosis and treatment of problems involving the liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a minimally invasive procedure that gives your doctor the ability to look inside these organs for any sign of disease or dysfunction by combining endoscopy with X-ray capability.

Functions of ERCP

  • Diagnosis of unexplained abdominal pain or yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice)
  • Evaluation of pancreatitis or cancer of the liver, pancreas or bile ducts
  • Removal of blockages or stones in the bile ducts
  • Treatment of infection in the bile ducts
  • Repair of fluid leakage from the bile or pancreatic ducts
