Oftentimes patients with multiple medical problems are high risk surgical candidates for the removal of the gallbladder when infected due to gallstones. Our interventional radiologist can place a drainage tube in the gallbladder to alleviate the issue. A new procedure can help ultimately remove the gallbladder tube in such patients using a thin fiberoptic camera called SpyGlass, a tiny basket, and a laser. The interventional radiologist can then extract the stones through the same access site as the pre-existing gallbladder tube without the need for anesthesia.
