Advanced Care of Conditions Affecting the Pancreas and Biliary Tract

Norton Healthcare gastroenterology specialists have been offering advanced care of pancreas and biliary tract conditions for patients in Louisville and Southern Indiana for more than 30 years.

Our board-certified and fellowship-trained specialists will work with you to pinpoint the cause of your pancreas or biliary tract condition and develop a customized treatment plan.

Leaders Treating Pancreas and Biliary Tract Disorders

Pancreas disorders include various forms of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. The biliary tract encompasses the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts. The gallbladder stores bile produced by the liver and passes it on to the stomach through the bile ducts. Pancreatic juice is added to bile as the pancreas and biliary tract work together to perform the majority of food digestion.

Norton Healthcare gastroenterology specialists are some of the few in the area to use endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). This procedure commonly is performed to check for cancer in the bile ducts and pancreas and remove gallstones from the bile ducts.
