Research/Clinical Interest
Title
Pancreatic diseases , Therapeutic Endoscopy
Description
My current research focus includes the role of endoscopic therapy in the treatment of pancreaticobiliary diseases. We are currently studying the effect of endoscopic stenting on abdominal pain in chronic pancreatitis as well as additional modalities for the treatment of pain in this setting. Other areas of research include ERCP-related complications, AIDS- related gastrointestinal complications, and NSAID-associated gastrointestinal bleeding.
