Advanced endoscopic ultrasound is a low-risk procedure that helps diagnose and treat concerns related to the upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Our team of North American and European Certified gastroenterologists utilize advanced endoscopic ultrasound techniques such as:
Hybrid biliary is an incision-less procedure used to treat gastrointestinal concerns, mainly in the liver and gallbladder.
Pancreatic fluid drainage is used to treat fluid retention in the pancreas, also known as pancreatic fluid collection, that occurs due to damage to the pancreas or premalignant or malignant conditions.
EUS-GJ bypass is a low-risk procedure used to extract tumors and treat blockages in the stomach and intestines.
Hybrid biliary is performed using an endoscope, a minimally-invasive flexible tube-like imaging tool that provides clear and detailed images of the peritoneal cavity to extract potentially cancerous cysts.
Pancreatic fluid drainage is performed using a thin tube called a catheter that is guided through the abdomen along with an endoscope that provides clear and detailed images of the pancreas to drain the excess fluid through the catheter.
EUS-GJ is a cutting-edge endoscopy procedure that uses an endoscope equipped with an ultrasound, camera, and electrocautery-enhanced lumen-apposing, self-expanding metal stent to create a connection between the stomach wall and part of the small bowel loop beyond the area of blockage, allowing food to pass through the stomach and into the intestines.
Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP) is a two-day, interactive course, which includes mandatory, pre-course e-learning. It covers the practical skills and knowledge that health care professionals need to effectively care for surgical patients, including those who are deteriorating or at risk of doing so.
