Penn Gastroenterology’s Interventional and Advanced Endoscopy program provides world-class care for the treatment of pancreaticobiliary diseases and neoplasia of the digestive tract.
Interventional and advanced endoscopic procedures are minimally invasive and typically result in quicker recovery times and fewer complications. These procedures involve the use of a thin, flexible tube with a tiny camera and light at its tip to examine the inside of a person’s body. The endoscope is inserted into the mouth or rectum, passes through the esophagus or intestines and takes images of the gastrointestinal tract.
Our gastroenterologists pioneered the use of endoscopic ultrasound, the most accurate detection and treatment of diseases within the human digestive tract, especially cancer.
Penn Medicine offers comprehensive gastrointestinal endoscopy treatments and procedures.
