ERCP Procedure at Emirates Hospital Group

ERCP involves the use of an endoscope—a long, flexible tube with a camera and light at the end—that is passed through the mouth, esophagus, and stomach into the duodenum. Here’s a detailed look at the ERCP procedure offered at Emirates Hospital Group:

Symptoms That Indicate Need for ERCP

ERCP is recommended for patients experiencing symptoms such as severe abdominal pain, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), unexplained weight loss, and persistent nausea or vomiting. These symptoms may indicate underlying conditions affecting the bile ducts or pancreas.

Diagnosis Through ERCP

ERCP is both diagnostic and therapeutic. It allows gastroenterologists to visualize the bile ducts and pancreatic ducts using contrast dye injected through the endoscope. This procedure helps in identifying conditions such as gallstones, tumors, strictures (narrowing), and inflammation that may be causing symptoms.

Recovery Process After ERCP

After ERCP at Emirates Hospital Group, patients are monitored closely in a recovery area to ensure there are no immediate complications from the procedure. Mild discomfort, bloating, or a sore throat may be experienced temporarily. Most patients can resume normal activities the next day, although specific instructions regarding diet and medications will be provided by our medical team.
