Staff Specialist – Interventional Gastroenterologist

Date published: May 10, 2023, 10:32 AM


Canberra Hospital, Canberra, ACT


The interventional endoscopy and pancreato-biliary service at Canberra Health Services currently has 2 dedicated interventional endoscopists that service the entire ACT and surrounding region. They are supported by an Advanced Endoscopy Fellow. They perform more than 300 diagnostic and therapeutic EUS procedures and more than 500 ERCP procedures annually.

In addition to this they perform luminal stenting, cholangioscopy, and endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) of large colonic polyps and other GI lesions. They work closely with upper GI surgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists in a multidisciplinary team approach.

There is now an excellent opportunity for a gastroenterologist with experience in interventional endoscopy to advance the current service and introduce novel advanced therapeutic endoscopic procedures to the region. There are multiple opportunities to participate in ongoing clinical research projects and prospective trials.

In addition to pancreato-biliary and advanced endoscopy service, the GEHU at Canberra hospital offers a broad range of services including IBD and hepatology services.
