Gastroenterology for gallbladder cancer


Gastroenterology for gallbladder cancer

Some gastrointestinal (GI) procedures for gallbladder cancer include:

  • Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS): Allows us to view high-quality images of the gallbladder and deliver treatment directly to a gallbladder mass.
  • Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR)
  • Stent placements
  • Balloon dilation for obstruction

What is gastroenterology?

Our Gastroenterology team deals with disorders of the digestive system, which is an important component for the diagnosis and treatment of gallbladder cancer. We offer innovative, minimally invasive procedures to treat gallbladder 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 gallbladder cancer team.
