Biography :

Andres Gelrud, MD, MMSc, is a clinical pancreatologist who provides care for patients with acute, recurrent acute and chronic pancreatitis, as well as treatment of complications from pancreatitis. He also has expertise in interventional endoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat problems of the digestive tract -- including gastrointestinal cancers. He is an expert in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to diagnose and treat diseases of the bile duct and pancreas. He also performs stent placement of the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, small bowel, bile duct and colon).

Dr. Gelrud is highly skilled at performing transgastric pancreatic necrosectomy, a procedure to remove necrotic pancreatic tissue through the mouth using endoscopes, rather than through abdominal surgery. In addition, he provides endoscopic treatment of bariatric surgery complications, including stricture dilation, closure of fistulas and anastomotic ulcers.

Dr. Gelrud has served as the primary site investigator on several studies that examine the reasons why patients develop pancreatitis. He has a particular interest in exploring the relationship between genetics and diseases of the pancreas.
