Pancreatic, Gallbladder & Liver Treatments (Hepatobiliary)

Pancreatitis Treatment

Associated Procedures

  • Electrohydraulic Lithotripsy (EHL): This procedure is used to treat gallstones in the biliary or pancreatic ducts that are difficult to remove with other methods. We use an endoscope with two conductors to create an electrical spark that breaks up the stone. With this technique, patients are able to go home the same day and return to their normal activities within just a couple days.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Puestow Procedure
  • Pain management
  • Total pancreatectomy

Biliary Disease

Associated Procedures

  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Endoscopic ultrasound-Directed transgastric ERCP (EDGE). EDGE is a minimally invasive procedure for gastric bypass patients with biliary, pancreatic, and gall bladder issues. Gall stones are a common problem for bypass patients and this procedure enables access to the stomach without open surgery, using ultrasound to help guide the placement of a stent. It provides a safe and proven alternative to traditional surgery and significantly reduces in-patient stays. Patients can continue toward their fitness goals without additional recovery time.
  • Lithotripsy
  • Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
