Less Cutting, More Edge

Danbury Hospital offers the latest generation of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) using the SpyGlass® Direct Visualization System. Danbury Hospital is the first in Connecticut and still one of the few U.S. medical centers to use the system. The SpyGlass system features a 6,000-pixel fiber optic probe that allows visual endoscopy of the bile duct. We are able to see a live image of the area, which results in a more accurate diagnosis, preventing major surgery where it’s not required.
