Gastroenterology for bile duct cancer

gastroenterology

What is gastroenterology?

Our Gastroenterology team deals with disorders of the digestive system, which is an important component for the diagnosis and treatment of bile duct cancer. We offer innovative, minimally invasive procedures to treat bile duct tumors, and relieve the troubling symptoms that often accompany the disease.

As part of the nutrition and metabolic support group, our gastroenterologists work closely with your oncologists, dietitians, naturopathic clinicians and the other members of your bile duct cancer team.

Gastroenterology for bile duct cancer

Some gastrointestinal (GI) procedures for bile duct cancer include:

  • ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography): Allows us to view the bile ducts in order to remove samples for biopsy, relieve an obstruction of the bile duct or place a stent into a narrowed duct to keep it open.
  • Stent placements
  • Balloon dilation for obstruction
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT)
