12th Annual Long Island Live Endoscopy
March 20 - March 21
The latest U.S. News & World Report has named NYU Winthrop Hospital as one of the best hospitals in the New York Metropolitan region for 2019-20, ranking for 6 high performing types of care, which includes Gastroenterology.
In 2020, the main focus of the Long Island Live Endoscopy course will again be cutting-edge endoluminal surgery and Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) techniques. These include three simultaneous live Per-Oral Endoscopic Myotomies (POEMs) demonstrating technique variations by three expert POEM operators in various challenging clinical scenarios, including multiple Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD), Endoscopic Full-Thickness Resection (EFTR), Submucosal Tunneling Endoscopic Resection (STER) for GI tumors, Zenker’s diverticulotomy, peroral pyloromyotomy and other endoscopic surgery procedures.
For the 8th year in a row we will feature live cases by Haruhiro Inoue, an ESD pioneer and global “Father of POEM”, cases by Ping-Hong Zhou, the operator with the highest volume of POEM and EFTR/STER cases in the world, and live cases by Naohisa Yahagi, a pre-eminent Japanese ESD master. Western approaches to colonic ESD and suturing will be demonstrated in live cases by Sergey Kantsevoy. Western approaches to POEM, ESD and EFTR, including use of the hybrid knife, Endoflip, Endoscopic Suturing and the DiLumen and ORISE-TRS technologies will be demonstrated in live cases by Stavros Stavropoulos.
