Lenox Hill Hospital’s Center for Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy (CATE) was proud to be the host site and transmission center for over 20 live advanced endoscopic teaching cases at the New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy’s (NYSGE) 32nd 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, twenty endoscopists demonstrated techniques in early GI cancer detection and treatment as well minimally invasive approaches to complex GI diseases.
The December 2008 meeting was the most successful ever and drew over 700 attendees from across the United Statess and beyond. The live cases, transmitted in high definition to physician and nurse audiences at the Marriott Marquis in Manhattan, showcased the latest in endoscopic technology performed by national and international experts.
In May, Lenox Hill Hospital’s CATE will be the transmission site for Digestive Disease Week (May 30-June 4, Chicago, IL) – the major international GI meeting drawing over 16,000 attendees.
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.
