Electrohydraulic Lithotripsy (EHL)

This procedure is used to treat gallstones in the bile 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.
