2016 Course Overview

8th Annual Long Island Live Endoscopy Course
April 1-2, 2016

Winthrop Research & Academic Conference Center
Mineola, New York

The course will focus again this year on cutting-edge endoluminal surgery and NOTES techniques with 6 lectures and 12 live cases including 3 simultaneous POEMs demonstrating technique variations by 3 expert operators in challenging clinical scenarios, multiple ESD and full thickness resections of GI tumors (EFTR/STER), peroral pyloromyotomy and other novel endoscopic surgical procedures. This course will feature live POEM & ESD cases by Haruhiro Inoue, an ESD pioneer and global "father of POEM," POEM & STER/EFTR cases by Pinghong Zhou, the highest volume POEM and EFTR/STER operator in the world and live ESD cases by Naohisa Yahagi, the pre-eminent ESD master in the world.  Western approaches to colonic ESD including use of the Lumen-R device will be demonstrated and discussed by Sergey Kantsevoy and western approaches to POEM, ESD and EFTR including use of the hybrid knife and Overstitch endoscopic suturing device will be discussed and demonstrated in live cases by course director Stavros Stravropoulos. Chris Gostout, master endoscopist and great endoscopy visionary will be again the master of ceremonies providing great insights and masterful commentary and guidance to the live operators. The very popular "Hands-On Lab with the Masters" will be held on April 2nd, offering instruction in POEM, ESD and other techniques. The hands-on lab has always rapidly sold-out in the past and we recommend early registration for those interested. For those interested in sampling past content, the 2013, 2014 and 2015 courses are archived in their entirety (lectures and live cases) at www.winthropendoscopy.org as an educational resource for those embarking on endoluminal surgical procedures such as POEM, ESD, EFTR, STER, endoscopic sleeve-gastroplasty, MUSE and others.
