The general focus of my work is related to endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of clinically important biliary and pancreatic disorders. This would include pancreatitis and pancreatic and biliary malignancies. I have recently been involved in investigation of new techniques for diagnosis and palliation of GI malignancies. Other areas of interest are in therapeutic endoscopy and its development as well as new imaging techniques for endoscopy.
I am also recognized in the area of endoscopy unit management and quality assurance.
Key words: pancreas disorders, pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, bile duct disorders, bile duct malignancies, ERCP, choledochoscopy, colorectal and esophageal cancer.
