    Bile Duct Stones

Dr. Todd Baron, a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, discusses symptoms, diagnoses, and management of bile duct stones. Many bile duct stones are found in the gall bladder and are managed by surgically removing them, which can often be done laparoscopically. Dr. Baron also discusses technique for removing difficult cases of bile duct stones by using a shock wave device to break up bigger stones into smaller stones.
