Hello and hope you are doing well.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a procedure. It depends on his physical condition and risk factors. His fitness for the procedure and anesthesia depend on his assessment by his physician.
The major risk of an ERCP is the development of pancreatitis, which can occur in up to 5% of all procedures.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
