Christopher Chapman, MD, is a skilled gastroenterologist with an expertise in interventional endoscopy. Dr. Chapman is a member of the Center for Endoscopic Research and Therapeutics (CERT), where he treats patients suffering from gastrointestinal disorders through minimally invasive endoscopic techniques. Dr. Chapman has a special interest in endoscopic bariatric therapies, such as intragastric balloon placement, endoscopic suturing (endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty and bariatric surgery revision) and aspiration therapy. These procedures offer a minimally invasive, reversible weight loss option for patients who are not candidates for, or decide against, surgery.

Dr. Chapman also performs a wide range of procedures, including endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA)/cryotherapy, to diagnosis and treat a variety of gastrointestinal diseases.

Through his ongoing research, Dr. Chapman has been investigating and evaluating the best interventional endoscopic techniques and tools used to treat gastrointestinal disorders and obesity. His extensive research has been published in multiple peer-reviewed journals, including Gastroenterology, Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Clinical Endoscopy and Nature Scientific Reports.
