Advanced Endoscopy: advancing minimally invasive care
Dr Edward Despott, a consultant gastroenterologist, GI endoscopist and an honorary associate professor at the University College of London extensively speaks on the ever evolving field of advanced endoscopy. In this lecture/talk, Dr Despott talks about the evolution of endoscopy over the years and how modern technologies such as Artificial Intelligence are being incorporated into endoscopy to achieve better therapeutic and diagnostic results.
Some of the topics he speaks on are the Paris classification of lesions and how endoscopy now enables healthcare providers to solve once invasive procedures such as haemostasis,pseudocyst drainage and stenting by minimally invasive methods. He also speaks on transnasal endoscopy, its contraindications, limitations and some feedback he received from some of his patients.
Also discussed in this lecture is how relatively new procedures such as the double balloon endoscopy and Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD) have contributed to improve patient care and enhance efficiency in his practice.
