Lenox Hill Hospital’s Center for Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy (CATE) was proud to be the host site and transmission center for over 22 live advanced endoscopic teaching cases at the New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy’s (NYSGE) 34th annual meeting. NYSGE is the largest regional endoscopic society in the United States.
Under the direction of Gregory Haber, MD, Director of Gastroenterology and CATE at Lenox Hill Hospital, 22 live cases from two endoscopy suites and two angio suites were transmitted live to over 800 attendees of the New York Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy meeting held at the Marriott Marquis. The “Live from Lenox Hill” has become the jewel of the meeting and is acknowledged as a very effective teaching tool and a forum for expert opinion from around the world on the latest advances in endoscopic management of GI disease.
The goals of this meeting are to enhance patient care by providing participants with a better understanding of how to use state-of-the-art technology in the most cost-effective way and to foster an evidence-based approach to endoscopic decision-making for the most commonly encountered and controversial problems facing gastroenterologists today.
