Texas Tech Physicians of El Paso’s department of surgery hosted 16 surgeons from three different institutions at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso for training on a minimally invasive procedure to remove gallstones from the bile duct. The procedure allows surgeons to remove gallstones from bile ducts during the same procedure to remove the gallbladder. They use a long thin camera inserted through a small incision in the abdomen to locate gallstones then use a retrieval basket to capture and remove them.
