By treating a wide range of patients with common and unusual gastrointestinal and liver disorders, you'll develop the clinical skills necessary to evaluate and manage patients. You'll also become a highly skilled diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopist and a cognitive and savvy gastroenterologist.

In addition to conventional procedures, you'll learn to perform leading-edge procedures such as:

  • Capsule Endoscopy
  • Double Balloon Endoscopy
  • Endoscopic Mucosal Resection
  • Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)
  • Enteroscopy

Further, we work closely with gastrointestinal surgeons on gastric pacemakers (Enterra®) for gastroparesis, novel treatments for obesity and weight management, and treatment of liver tumors and pancreaticobiliary disorders.

In addition, we collaborate with urologists on InterStim® for the treatment of urinary or fecal incontinence, and with otolaryngologists for FEES, Botox and management of swallowing problems. And we operate a hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) center that serves patients throughout the Southeast.
The primary training sites are Augusta University Medical Center, Charlie Norwood Veterans Administration Medical Center and colleges within the Augusta University, including nursing, dental and allied health.
