Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship

Of the several endoscopy procedure units on campus, the comprehensive endoscopy unit at the Stanford University Medical Center is equipped state-of-the-art instruments which are used not only for patient care but also for interdisciplinary and collaborative research unique to Stanford. 

The unit excels in performing procedures in complex and high risk patients. Our advanced endoscopy faculty perform and provide training for our advanced endoscopy fellows in procedures such as:

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic ERCP
  • Cholangioscopy and pancreatoscopy
  • Sphincter of oddi manometry
  • Endoscopic ultrasonography
  • Cyst-gastrostomy
  • Celiac plexus block
  • Confocal endomicroscopy
  • Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR)
  • Endoscopic suturing
  • Double balloon enteroscopy
  • Complex poly removal including endoscopic submucosal dissection

Our previous fellows have had ample opportunities for research with multiple presentation at meetings such as DDW as well as local and regional events.

"As a physician-scientist with a passion for digestive diseases and stem cell biology, I realized that Stanford Gastroenterology was the perfect place for me. Stanford remains at the cutting edge of research and clinical training. I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a GI fellow at Stanford, where I was able to do groundbreaking research and learn gastroenterology from master clinicians, It continues to be exciting every day"
