Research Summary

I am interested in the optimal application of advanced endoscopic techniques to clinical problems including gastrointestinal bleeding, colonoscopic polyp detection and resection, evaluation and resection of early esophageal and gastric cancers utilizing endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), evaluation of pancreas cysts, diagnosis of pancreas cancer, pancreatic and biliary disorders, therapy of bile duct obstruction via ERCP, Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and biopsy (FNB), advanced endoscopic imaging including digital chromoendoscopy and confocal microscopy, and sedation for endoscopy.
