Going Beyond Standard Endoscopic Care

Our interventional endoscopy team strives to push the boundaries of endoscopic technology for the benefit of our patients. Our complex endoscopic procedures can diagnose conditions early and spare patients from major surgery. We use the most innovative endoscopic techniques to provide minimally invasive solutions. Many of the advanced endoscopic techniques we use were developed or perfected by our physicians.

We collaborate with referring physicians to develop personalized treatment plans, and we keep them informed at every point in patient care. Our consultation and procedure turnaround time is fast — 24 to 36 hours.

We work with UChicago Medicine experts in a variety of specialties to provide a team approach to care. Our team also includes nurse coordinators who are dedicated to helping our patients navigate and understand their treatment, whether that is a simple, one-time procedure or requires ongoing care.

Our services include:

  • Advanced imaging techniques to identify precancerous conditions, sometimes even before they can be found with standard endoscopy
  • Endoscopic treatment of malignancies and obstruction of the GI tract and other complicated conditions, sparring patients from the risk of surgery
  • Precise endoscopic diagnosis and staging of cancer, enabling referring physicians to plan the most appropriate and effective treatment

Many of the procedures we offer are available at only a handful of hospitals nationwide. These differentiating procedures include peroral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and photodynamic therapy (PDT).
