Suggest alternative treatment for Cholecystectomy

Can a cut Bile duct after a Single-Site da Vincicho Cholecystectomy be repaired without surgery. A gastroenterologist used endoscopy to place a stent in te bile duct to keep the duct open and to let it heal on its own. So far after two months surgery and three hospital stays I still have systems related bile in the abdominal cavity.

Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am Dr.Amit Jain (DM, Gastroenterologist).

Bile duct injury after cholecystectomy can be managed by Gastroenterologist as You said by placing a stent across the injury for few months which is known as ERCP. It is itself a non surgical method. There is none other non surgical method for repair of bile duct injury

I hope I have answered your query. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Wish you a good health
