ASGE launches separate website pathways for general and advanced endoscopists

ASGE is the home of both general and advanced endoscopists. As part of the pursuit of excellence and innovation in all areas of gastrointestinal endoscopy, a critical enhancement has been added to ASGE.org that offers separate pathways for general and advanced endoscopists in accessing resources and educational programs the ASGE offers.

Relevant information has been curated for easy access and convenience of each segment, including specific GIE and VideoGIE articles, Journal Scan articles, events and other resources. The pages will be continuously updated, and will soon feature new initiatives that ASGE is working on to enhance the support to our members in both general and advanced endoscopy. More to come on that soon.

ASGE is committed to our mission to be the global leader in advancing digestive care through education, advocacy and promotion of excellence and innovation in endoscopy.

 


About Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures allow the gastroenterologist to visually inspect the upper gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach and duodenum) and the lower bowel (colon and rectum) through an endoscope, a thin, flexible device with a lighted end and a powerful lens system. Endoscopy has been a major advance in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. For example, the use of endoscopes allows the detection of ulcers, cancers, polyps and sites of internal bleeding. Through endoscopy, tissue samples (biopsies) may be obtained, areas of blockage can be opened and active bleeding can be stopped. Polyps in the colon can be removed, which has been shown to prevent colon cancer.
