Procedures and Therapies

Dr. Mallat has developed a regional reputation for his experience in treating complex pancreatic and biliary diseases. Utilizing the latest techniques available in "interventional gastroenterology", Dr. Mallat manipulates the gastrointestinal tract with fine instruments that are introduced through the endoscope. For example in a patient with blockage of the bile duct, an interventional gastroenterologist endoscopically places a small tube called a stent into the bile duct to relieve the obstruction.
