More Options, Better Outcomes

Endoscopic Management

We offer treatment to manage and/or prevent complications that could occur if the bile ducts become blocked or obstructed due to the cancer. Blocked or obstructed bile ducts may lead to jaundice, infection, fever, chills and subsequent hospitalization and treatment interruption.

Our advanced biliary endoscopist can place plastic or expandable metal stents in the bile ducts to maintain proper bile drainage, essention for both quality of life and better outcomes.
