Basic Principles

With Module One, “Basic Principles”, we introduce you to the fundamental tools, techniques and principles underlying surgical endoscopy. The lectures within this module are divided into sections covering Surgical, Medical and Common considerations. This is done to emphasize that students with various backgrounds will take part in this training and allows us to start with a shared understanding of the fundamental principles, tools and practices involved. We begin with the endoscope (its variations, components and accessories) and start to explain the techniques and tricks for technical success...

In Module Two, we approach the “Digestive System” in 4 parts: the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, and colon. An additional chapter will focus on bariatrics. For each, we discuss the unique anatomy, pathology, surgical and endoscopic knowledge and the complications involved. We will cover diagnostic EGD, surveillance and treatment of Barrett’s esophagus (including advanced imaging techniques) and therapeutic basics such as biopsy, tissue resection and ablation – for esophagus and stomach as well. From there we address enteral access and the unique diagnostic and therapeutic issues in the colon and rectum...
