Endoscopy & Pancreatic-Biliary Disorders

The Section for Endoscopy and Pancreatic – Biliary Disease is devoted to excellence in patient care, research and education in the fields of gastrointestinal endoscopy and pancreatic disease.

Endoscopes are flexible tubes that can be passed through the mouth or rectum, and allow direct viewing of the surfaces of the esophagus (food pipe), stomach, intestine and colon. Endoscopic examinations allow physicians to diagnose and treat a variety of intestinal disorders, including abdominal pain, vomiting, and bleeding from the intestinal tract. In addition, benign growths of the colon which can be precursors of colon cancer may be detected and removed. Special adaptations of the endoscope allow stones to be removed from the bile duct (drainage tube for digestive juices of the liver and gallbladder) and pancreas. A new technique, known as endoscopic ultrasound, allows very high detailed views of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as neighboring structures such as the pancreas.

Pancreatic disease may manifest itself in many ways, including painful masses, acute intermittent attacks of pain, or chronic inability to digest food due to insufficient production of pancreatic digestive enzymes. Our section employs a multidisciplinary approach to the care of these patients, meaning specialists from many different departments work together to plan your care. Specialists in gastroenterology collaborate with colleagues in surgery, anesthesiology, and radiology
