Biography

Dr. Nagar is an accomplished gastroenterology consultant with more than 20 years of experience in Advanced Endoscopy procedures within the Yale University/ Yale New Haven Health system and as the Director of Endoscopy at the West Haven Department of Veteran's Affairs.

Dr. Nagar is a renowned clinician, specializing in diagnosis and treatment of pancreas and biliary disorders including acute and chronic pancreatitis, pancreas cancer, cholangiocarcinoma, Barrett's esophagus, esophageal cancer, gastric cancer and colon cancer.

He has extensive knowledge and experience in pancreas and biliary procedures such as ERCP, EUS/FNA, enteral stenting, celiac plexus neurolysis, Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR), Endoscopy with RFA, complicated colonoscopy/polypectomy and other advanced endoscopic procedures used to diagnose and treat both benign and malignant diseases of the GI tract.

Dr. Nagar is a leading expert in minimally invasive techniques such as Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD), which is a technique to removal large benign growths and early malignant tumors from the GI tract, and thereby avoid a surgical resection. He is also an expert in Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM) which is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure to treat Achalasia and other related diseases, which cause difficulty swallowing.

Dr. Nagar is not only a skilled clinician, but also a valuable educator. He has been integrally involved in the training of gastroenterology fellows at Yale for 21 years.

He was recruited to join Yale's renowned Advanced Endoscopy team in January 2022 where he will use his unique knowledge, skills and expertise to advance a patient centered approach to care.
