Our doctors uses stents primarily to open up the bile ducts, esophagus, small bowel and colon when those body parts have become blocked by large, cancerous tissue. The stent placement procedure is meant to repair a person’s natural ability to digest food and drink anywhere along the GI tract (gastrointestinal tract), from the mouth to the anus, especially when cancer patients are having trouble swallowing, passing stool or otherwise digesting during their cancer treatment. Stents can be installed either permanently or temporarily.
