Modified ERCP

Modified endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) 

Modified endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) – or ERCP during pregnancy – is a new technique for treating gallstones in pregnant women. Modified ERCP allows a surgeon to remove gallstones without using x-rays, which can harm the fetus.

Methodist Dallas Medical Center was the first hospital in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to offer this procedure.

Gallstones affect up to 5 percent of pregnant women. Without treatment, they can cause life-threatening complications for both mother and baby. Modified ERCP uses an endoscope (a long, thin, flexible tube with a light) to guide a small wire into the bile duct and remove the gallstones.

Where is the modified ERCP test performed?

Modified ERCP is done by the order of a physician, and is available at:

Methodist Dallas Medical Center
214-947-3441

Methodist Richardson Medical Center
Center for Digestive Health
469-204-1000

 

Texas law prohibits hospitals from practicing medicine. The physicians on the Methodist Health System medical staff are independent practitioners who are not employees or agents of Methodist Health System, Methodist Dallas Medical Center, Methodist Charlton Medical Center, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, Methodist Richardson Medical Center, or any other affiliated institution.
