David M Shapiro

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

I perform primary and secondary endoscopic (non-surgical) therapies for obesity, including placement of the Orbera gastric balloon, the Aspire Assist device and endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty.

Our diseases of interest include esophageal cancer, eosinophilic esophagitis, scleroderma esophageal disease and achalasia.
