Training for Advanced Endoscopy 

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has a long tradition of excellence in advanced endoscopy, and is the largest referral practice for ERCP in New England, and one of the largest in the nation. Nearly 2,000 ERCPs are performed annually, many involving complex interventions for patients referred from other medical centers for altered anatomy, difficult stones, failed access, and pancreaticobiliary malignancy.

Our program performs over 1,800 EUS procedures annually including interventional EUS techniques such as fiducial insertion, pancreatic necrosectomy/pseudocyst drainage, EUS guided biliary access and EUS liver biopsy. Advanced endoscopy fellows also receive extensive experience in endoscopic mucosal resection for large colon polyps, early esophageal cancers, duodenal/ampullary adenomas, and gastric neoplasia. There is also broad exposure to novel endoscopic techniques including optical coherence tomography, radiofrequency ablation, cryotherapy, luminal stenting, single-balloon enteroscopy, laser lithotripsy, and digital cholangioscopy/pancreatoscopy. Interested fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in the full-range of achalasia treatment including pneumatic dilation and POEM. Most fellows complete one year of training, although some elect to pursue additional time for further clinical training or research.
