Bile Duct Resection

Bile is a bitter, yellow fluid produced by your liver. Bile is released by your gallbladder into the small intestine via a thin tube (duct) when you eat and helps to break down fats. 

If your bile duct is damaged or diseased, your consultant may recommend bile duct resection (removal). The type and complexity of your procedure will vary depending on what area of the bile duct is involved.
