Clinical Interest for Patients: My clinical interests broadly cover the entire realm of therapeutic endoscopy including management of pancreaticobiliary disease, technically difficult luminal disease and novel endoscopic therapies of obesity. In doing so, I carefully employ various endoscopic techniques including interventional ERCP, interventional EUS, enteroscopy, entersocopy assisted ERCP, endoscopic mucosal resection, crytotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, enteral dilation and stent placement, cystgastrostomy, as well as celiac plexus block and neurolysis.

I was brought to the University of Colorado in large part to develop a bariatric endoscopy program. Bariatric endoscopy is an emerging field within gastroenterology addressing not only surgical complications of weight loss procedures but also offering future potential for incisionless endoscopic weight loss therapies. At the University of Colorado, we offer a multidisciplinary approach to weight loss providing both traditional and novel endoscopic techniques to manage early and late problematic outcomes. These low risk procedures offer a means for immediate improvement with nearly no morbidity.

Weight regain after initial successful weight loss has been attributed in part to expansion of the surgically restricted stomach and the anastomosis of the small bowel with the stomach. Using incisionless endoscopic suturing both sites may be reconstrained, facilitating weight stability, if not loss. In the near future, we envision offering low risk, reversible endoscopic weight loss procedures for those individuals not immediately appropriate for surgical intervention, be the patient otherwise too ill, obese, or even not overweight enough.
