Endoscopy is a technically challenging procedure. Until recently it was regarded as a routine procedure that could be performed by general gastroenterologists until outcome and follow-up analyses revealed unacceptably high levels of complications. The opinion-leaders in endoscopy have brought about a shift in attitude. The emphasis is now very much on a 'back to basics' approach with retraining recommended for all levels of doctors performing endoscopy - and several techniques restricted to only the very experienced.
This series is aimed at the endoscopist with some experience who wishes to achieve competency in the more advanced techniques.
The book includes information and guidelines for all aspects of practice management relating to endoscopy. It provides a practical manual on how to perform techniques in the most safe and effective ways to reduce complications.
It covers training, endoscopy and imaging equipment, set-up of endoscopy units, cleaning & disinfection and patient preparation and monitoring. It also contains techniques for screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up from THE leading international names.

About the Author
- Peter Cotton was born in England, educated at Cambridge University and at St. Thomas Hospital Medical School (London). He became interested in endoscopy in the late 1960’s with the introduction of flexible fiberscopes, and developed units at St. Thomas’ Hospital and at the Middlesex Hospital, which pioneered and evaluated many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, particularly ERCP. He attracted postgraduates from many countries, held numerous teaching courses, and introduced live CCTV workshops. In 1986 he became Professor of Medicine and Chief of Endoscopy at Duke University in North Carolina, and developed a state of the art endoscopy center. He maintained his interests in teaching, new techniques, and careful outcome evaluation. He moved to Charleston, South Carolina in 1994 to initiate and lead a Digestive Disease Center, dedicated to multi-disciplinary patient care, and the research and education needed to enhance it.
