Lenox Hill Hospital’s Center for Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy (CATE) was proud to be the host site and transmission center for live advanced endoscopic teaching cases at the New York Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy’s (NYSGE) 30th annual meeting.   NYSGE organizes and hosts the largest regional endoscopic meeting in the United States.  Attendees come not only from the tri-state area and across the country but over 15 overseas countries have registered members at this course.

Under the direction of Gregory Haber, MD, Director of Gastroenterology and CATE at Lenox Hill Hospital, 16 live cases from two endoscopy suites and two angio suites were transmitted live to over 700 attendees of the New York Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy meeting held at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.   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 guest faculty were invited from major endoscopy centers in the United States, as well as, Germany, Israel and China.

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.   All of the recorded material is archived and serves as a major resource for online learning going forward.

“Hands down, this is the best GI program I have attended. I am truly honored to be part of such a phenomenal event.  Live programming reached unheard-of perfection,” said Tom Deas, the President of The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
