Personal profile

Research Interests

I perform primary and secondary endoscopic (non-surgical) therapies for obesity, including placement of the Orbera gastric balloon, the Aspire Assist device and endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty. I also perform gastro-jejunal outlet reduction for weight regain after bariatric surgery. I have also been trained to use the EsophyX device (TIF procedure) as a minimally invasive (non-surgical) treatment for GERD. I am also interested in endoscopic treatment of post-surgical complications and endoscopic suturing.
