The Therapeutic Endoscopy Center of Excellence, directed by Andrew Ross, MD, is the West Coast leader in therapeutic endoscopy. Recognized by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy's national Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program for quality and safety in the practice of GI endoscopy, the Center helps patients seeking diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal, biliary, and pancreatic disorders that are not commonly seen in other centers. Patients receive care from a multidisciplinary team of providers including GI procedure nurses, allied health care professionals, interventional radiologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, and radiology technicians who are specially trained in advanced therapeutic endoscopy. Recent advances in endoscope technology give our team the tools and resources to provide extraordinary care with greater efficiency, safety and precision.
- The Therapeutic Endoscopy Center offers many endoscopic procedures.
With the addition of Jones Pavilion to the Virginia Mason Seattle campus, the Digestive Disease Institute has designed a 15,000 square foot therapeutic endoscopy unit to accommodate the growing volume and changing nature of endoscopic procedures. Check out this video for an inside look at the new procedural space that opened in May 2012.
In 2012, after a year of training, the multidisciplinary team at Virginia Mason’s Digestive Disease Institute became the first in the Northwest to implement endoscopic sub-mucosal dissection for treating early gastrointestinal cancers using a minimally invasive, incision-less approach.
