Interventional Endoscopy FAQ

What is Interventional Endoscopy?

Interventional Endoscopy, also known as Advanced Endoscopy, refers to advanced and minimally invasive endoscopic services, tertiary care workups, and second opinions for gastroenterologists, medical and surgical oncologists, hepatobiliary/thoracic/bariatric/colorectal/general surgeons, and primary care physicians.

We specialize in patients with complex gastrointestinal disease from both benign and malignant causes. We often accept patients who have been declined by other centers or who have had procedures attempted and failed at other hospitals.

Benefits for Referring Partners

Interventional endoscopy is a supportive program for gastroenterologists, oncologists, hepatobiliary/thoracic/bariatric/colorectal/general surgeons, and primary care physicians. Our goal is to leverage our expertise to help you care for your patients and collaboratively participate in their care – ideally, getting them back in your hands for longitudinal care.

We provide unrivaled care for all foregut and pancreaticobiliary cancers. Referred patients will have a complete workup performed and will be referred to appropriate other specialists based on their preferences and patient feedback. We perform complete staging, treatment, and palliative treatments. We also participated and helped create multidisciplinary teams in oncology and complex pancreaticobiliary/foregut care to optimize patient outcomes.
