Dr. Shah's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shah "I joined Ochsner Medical Center in 2015 as the Section Head of Advanced Endoscopy. I completed my training in Gastroenterology and Advanced Endoscopy at the University of Pennsylvania. Before joining Ochsner, I spent over 10 years practicing in San Francisco, where I was the Director of Pancreatic and Biliary Endoscopy at California Pacific Medical Center and a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California. My clinical interests span all areas of advanced endoscopy, and my current research interests are related to interventional endoscopic ultrasound, pancreaticobiliary endoscopy, and new endoscopic technologies. I am board certified in Gastroenterology, and have authored numerous peer-reviewed articles, reviews, editorials, and book chapters."
