Don’t miss the course that Chris Gostout called “the most unique live case course on the globe from the perspective of demonstrating where interventional endoscopy can and should be going” and Haruhiro Inoue has described “as a course with the most challenging and advanced cases in the world”!

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.

The 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 operator and “first-in-humans” EFTR/STER pioneer 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 by Sergey Kantsevoy and western approaches to POEM, ESD and EFTR including hybrid knife and Overstitch techniques will be demonstrated in live cases by course director Stavros Stavropoulos

Chris Gostout, NOTES visionary and thought leader will be again the master of ceremonies providing masterful commentary and guidance to the live operators and audience.

The very popular “hands-on lab with the masters” will be held on April 1nd, offering ex-vivo instruction in POEM, ESD and other techniques by the renowned live faculty.  

Our Bioskill labs have rapidly sold-out in the past; we recommend early registration.

For those interested in past LIL content, the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 courses are archived in their entirety (18 lectures and over 30 live “New NOTES”/endoluminal surgery procedures) at as an educational resource for those embarking on POEM, ESD, EFTR, STER, cricopharyngeal myotomy, endoscopic sleeve-gastroplasty, MUSE, transluminal EUS guided interventions and other “New NOTES” and endoluminal surgical procedures.
