Understanding the ERCP Procedure

Dr. Ali recognized as one of the best gastroenterologist in Karachi, offers Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedure for patients with biliary and pancreatic disorders, providing a minimally invasive approach to diagnosis and treatment.

Pre-Procedural Consultation

Dr. Ali personally meets with each patient to discuss the ERCP procedure, ensuring they are fully informed about the purpose, potential risks, and benefits. This consultation includes a thorough review of the patient’s medical history and preparation instructions.


Patients receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for the ERCP, typically involving fasting and specific guidelines regarding ongoing medications.


To ensure the utmost comfort, sedation is administered and carefully monitored throughout the procedure, maintaining patient safety as a top priority.

The Procedure

Dr. Ali guides an endoscope through the digestive tract to the target area. A dye is injected into the pancreatic and bile ducts for clear imaging, and X-rays are taken to identify any issues.


If needed, Dr. Ali performs interventions like stone removal or stent placement during the procedure, addressing any abnormalities with precision.

Post-Procedural Care

Post-procedure, patients are monitored as they recover from sedation. Dr. Ali provides comprehensive instructions for post-procedure care, including dietary guidelines and signs to watch for any complications.


A follow-up appointment is scheduled to discuss the results and any further steps, ensuring continuous care and support.

Dr. Ali’s approach to ERCP procedures is a testament to his dedication to excellence in gastroenterology, prioritizing patient well-being, and delivering high-quality medical care.
