Interventional Gastroenterology is a rapidly expanding field at the cutting edge of innovation and novelty. New device technology coupled with improvements in endosonographic and high-definition imaging as well as the advent of carbon dioxide insufflation has led to a revolution in endoscopic therapy. The last decade has seen the emergence and widespread adoption of entirely new fields of endoscopy including therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound (T-EUS), third space endoscopy, and endobariatrics. In addition, new technology has allowed for major advancements in pancreaticobiliary management as well as Barretts Esophagus therapy.
