7th Annual Long Island Live Endoscopy Course
March 27, 2015

Winthrop Research & Academic Conference Center
Mineola, New York

Dear Colleague, 

I am delighted to invite you to the 7th Annual Long Island Live Endoscopy Course, March 27 & 28, 2015 at Winthrop’s new Research & Academic Conference Center. One of the guiding principles of Long Island Live has been to expose participants to new frontiers of advanced endoscopy. In 2014, Christopher Gostout, MD commented that “Winthrop should be proud of putting together the most unique live case course on the globe from the perspective of demonstrating where interventional endoscopy can and should be going.” Over 170 participants attended the 2014 live course and we anticipate continued growth in 2015 for both the live and simulcast Web formats of the event.

We aim to “up the ante” again for 2015! A major theme will be an exploration of endoscopic anti-reflux surgery: the when, how, and on whom. Faculty “masters” will present lectures and perform live procedures on POEM, ESD, EFTR, STER, Endoscopic Bariatric and Anti-reflux Surgery. Chris Gostout, MD, who has served as “chief moderator” for the past four years, will again serve in this capacity.  We are also planning an “encore” of last year’s “POEM simultané” with Dr.’s Inoue, Zhou and Stavropoulos doing 3 POEMs simultaneously demonstrating current POEM technique variations with commentary by one of the inventors of SM endoscopy, Dr. Gostout. We then plan to escalate to live demonstrations of ESD, EFTR, STER, MUSE and other endoluminal surgery techniques. All didactic lectures and live cases will be broadcast live on the web as in all prior years reaching a broad US and international audience. 

Based on the success of last year’s lab, we will again offer an optional second day, five-hour skill-building ex-vivo laboratory featuring POEM, ESD and suturing techniques with the course “masters” instructing. The lab will be held on Saturday, March 28 at the Winthrop conference center on campus from 8:30a - 12:30p. The lab will be limited to the first 24 physicians who register. New technology will also be demonstrated.

This year, the course will be held in the newly built Winthrop Research and Academic Conference Center, a multimillion dollar state of the art complex that will open in February 2015. The Center is equipped with fiber optic cable transmission from our procedure suite to ultra-high definition 4K projectors at the main auditorium! Guest rooms for participants and faculty may be reserved at the Garden City Hotel, an historic, 4-star hotel located 5 minutes from the new conference center. www.gardencityhotel.com. 

Please plan to join us for this exciting educational event!
