I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to stay at Duke after completing my gastroenterology training. This has given me the opportunity to spend the past 20 years focusing my career using various minimally invasive endoscopic techniques to diagnose and treat many gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. These range from benign conditions such as gallstones and pancreatitis to tumors of GI tract -- for example esophageal rectal and pancreatic cancers. The techniques I use help in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions as well as in the staging of many GI cancers. I consider myself very fortunate to be working in a stimulating clinical practice that is both challenging and rewarding.
