EGD (Gastroscopy) with TNE Course Description

EGD is the diagnostic procedure of choice in many cases of upper GI disease. Patients who have symptoms limited to the esophagus and larynx may be adequately evaluated with TNE. With the advent of smaller (ultrathin) fiber-optic endoscopes, office-based EGD and TNE can now be readily performed. The later procedure does not require monitoring devices or sedation. If these procedures are performed in the office, reimbursement is usually higher. Primary care physicians nationwide are acquiring skills to perform these procedures and research has documented excellent quality of care. Your patients will benefit from rapid, accurate, cost-effective diagnosis.

You will appreciate the practical pointers of getting started in the office or GI lab. Proper patient selection, sedation needs, and necessary equipment will be reviewed. Videotapes will reinforce lecture materials. Teaching models will provide “hands-on” experience in using the gastroscope. TNE training includes performing the procedure on volunteers.
