Biliary Cancer

Biliary cancer is a form of cancer that develops in the bile duct system, which carries the digestive fluid called bile. Depending on the location and stage of your biliary cancer, several treatment options are available, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a liver transplant.

Biliary Disorders

Biliary disorders affect the bile ducts, gallbladder and other structures that assist in the flow of bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine. Bile is a fluid that is created by the liver and stored in the gallbladder that aids in digestion.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

This outpatient procedure combines upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy and x-rays to treat problems of the bile and pancreatic ducts.

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

A short outpatient procedure, an endoscopic ultrasound is an important diagnostic tool for gastroenterologists to evaluate the esophagus, stomach, colon and rectum, as well as the organs located near the digestive tract.

Gallbladder Cancer

Gallbladder cancer is a rare form of cancer in which an abnormal growth of cells begins in the gallbladder. The size and location of the gallbladder can make it easier for cancer to grow undetected.

Gallbladder Disease

The gallbladder is the small organ located under the liver that stores bile. Gallbladder disease includes inflammation, infection, stones or blockage of the gallbladder.

Gallstones are hard deposits of digestive fluid that can form in the gallbladder or bile ducts. For some patients, gallstones can be quite painful, but South Denver GI offers a range of treatment options to get you back to health.

Pancreatitis (Acute and Chronic)

Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas that can come on suddenly (acute) or develop over a period of time (chronic). If you experience acute onset or persistent abdominal pain, please seek medical care right away.

Pancreatic Cancer

The pancreas secretes enzymes that aid digestion and hormones that help regulate the metabolism of sugars. There are typically no symptoms of pancreatic cancer in the early stages, which is why it’s often detected late. Treatment may include surgically removing the pancreas, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Pancreatic Disorders

When the pancreas does not function properly it can lead to several different disorders such as acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, hereditary pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.

SpyGlass Cholangioscopy

With this outpatient procedure, a gastroenterologist examines the bile ducts using a small caliber scope. It allows your doctor to visualize the biliary duct system and difficult-to-reach small ducts in the pancreas.
