Interventional Endoscopy

The Interventional Endoscopy Program at Northwestern is at the forefront of new technology and research with a team of key thought leaders in many areas of endoscopic therapeutic interventions including:

  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Biliary and Pancreatic Duct Endoscopy--Cholangioscopy and Pancreatoscopy (SpyGlass)
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)
  • Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)
  • Endoscopic Therapies for Barrett’s Esophagus (Radiofrequency ablation, endoscopic resection)
  • Balloon Enteroscopy and Spiral Enteroscopy for Small Bowel Disorders
  • Endoscopic Management of Complications after Gastric Bypass Surgery
  • Enteral, Esophageal, and Colonic Stenting
  • Video Capsule Endoscopy
  • Feeding Tube Placement and Management
  • Celiac Plexus Neurolysis (Nerve Block)
  • Pancreatic Pseudocyst Drainage

Current Ongoing Research

  1. Investigation of GERD symptoms in patients with Barrett’s Esophagus undergoing RFA

  2. Long term outcomes of patients undergoing endoscopic therapies for Barrett’s Esophagus

  3. Impact of ERCP with cholangioscopic tissue acquisition in benign and malignant biliary strictures

  4. Biopsy Techniques for Gastric Submucosal Masses (e.g. GIST)

  5. Optimization of difficult biliary cannulation techniques

  6. Use of Balloon Enteroscopy for previous incompletely (difficult) colonoscopies
