Conference Brochure

Certificate Course in Diagnostic and Interventional Lower GI Endoscopy is organized by Center of Excellence for Minimal Access Surgery Training (CEMAST) and will be held from Apr 06 - 08, 2020 at Center of Excellence for Minimal Access Surgery Training, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Target Audience:
• Surgical and Gastroenterological Residents
• Young physicians entering into the field of GI Endoscopy
• Surgeons practicing GI surgery who want to start basic diagnostic and interventional Lower GI Endoscopy in their day to day practice
• Surgeons and physicians who want to pursue GI Endoscopy as their future career
• Surgeons and physicians who are already performing Upper GI Endoscopy but want to expand their skills to do Lower GI Endoscopic procedures

Course Description:
Flexible Lower GI Endoscopy is nowadays routinely required in the practice of Gastroenterology and GI Surgery. Lower GI Endoscopy plays a very important diagnostic role to differentiate various types of colitis, or diagnose pathologies causing diarrhoea, constipation and rectal bleeding. The technique of polypectomy and other interventional procedures too have expanded over the past few decades.Every surgeon who practices GI surgery therefore is likely to require the help of flexible Lower GI Endoscopy for the diagnosis of pathologies or to plan the surgery. In addition, nowadays many GI diseases can be better tackled by interventional endoscopic techniques rather than by surgery, thereby providing a safe and effective treatment for patients. It is imperative therefore that today’s GI surgeon and especially those who treat colonic pathologies are well versed in the technique of diagnostic Lower GI Endoscopy and basic interventional Lower GI Endoscopy. Lower GI Endoscopy which includes visualization of the colon and terminal ileum is inherently a more difficult procedure than Upper GI Endoscopy requiring more practice and a better hand-eye co-ordination. This CEFET course is especially designed for the GI surgeon and physician of today with a special emphasis on learning how to perform a safe, effective and painless Lower GI examination.

• To learn the proper indications and contraindications of doing a Lower GI procedure
• To learn the basic interventional Lower GI endoscopic procedures like polypectomy, balloon dilatation and sclerotherapy of haemorrhoids which surgeons can perform in their day to day practice
• To know about what complications can arise due to endoscopic procedures and how to prevent them
• To learn about sedation methods required for performing endoscopy
• To learn how to generate standardized Lower GI endoscopy reports using proper terminology
