Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography

Jefferson's expert team of digestive disease physicians and radiologists use the most advanced minimally invasive technology for diagnostic procedures for the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas. One such procedure is called endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), which uses a mini-camera attached to a tube called an endoscope that allows our physicians to see X-ray images detailing the structure of your organs.

The information obtained through the ERCP procedure will help your physician make an accurate diagnosis for disorders such as gallstones, bile duct blockage, unexplained abdominal pain, cancer and pancreatitis.

If disease is detected, we will develop a personalized treatment plan based on the precise nature of your condition and your individual needs.
