Digestive Endoscopy Center
The Digestive Endoscopy Center of Jiangsu Province Hospital was founded in 2014. It has been recently developed as the novel department for precise management of digestive disease. The center is now the training institute for APAGE/JGH Foundation Clinician-Scientist Training program and Union for International Cancer Control. Every year in our center, there are 70-80 thousand cases for gastroscopy/enteroscopy, more than 1000 ERCP and over 1000 ESD treatment. As the leading team, we could provide advanced endoscopic diagnosis and intervention for digestive diseases, such as NBI, chromoscope, ESD, EMR, POEM, ERCP and more. The First Affiliated Hospital with Nanjing Medical University/Jiangsu Province Hospital(JSPH) is one of the top 25 hospitals and with highest reputation among level III hospitals in China.
The center currently employs 6 endoscopists, among which 1 have senior professional titles, 1 are full professors, and 2 are associate professors.

What is Digestive Endoscopy? —— Interior Scope For Health Hope
The center provides inpatient and outpatient examination and treatment care. Specialists in digestive endoscopy center can directly diagnose and treat intestinal problems through visual endoscopy. Different from general surgery, endoscopists can micro-invasively treat gastrointestinal lesions and efficiently solve patients’ symptom. Our center provides better endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases, especially clinical application of advanced techniques (EMR, ESD, POEM, EFR, STER, ERCP).
1. General tests
Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy
2. Therapeutic procedures
ERCP for pancreatic biliary diseases
EMR/ESD for gastrointestinal early
Stent for intraluminal stricture or fistula
Esophageal sclerotherapy for bleeding
POEM for achalasia
STER for submucosal tumor
Endoscopic intervention for GERD
Endoscopic strategy for diabetes and obesity
Our team has multiple cooperation with international institution and society. Since 2014, our colleagues have attended the international meeting and been rewarded by organizing committee. Prof. Fan has been invited to perform live demonstration and endoscopic training in foreign countries, such as Spain, Pakistan etc. We also receive foreign visiting doctors worldwide, and have finished two long-term training programs for Pakistan and Siri Lanka doctors. On 2016 and 2017, we hold two international congresses about novel advances for ESD/EUS/ERCP. Most famous presidents from international endoscopic societies have been invited for presentation, and they highly praised our facility and clinical achievement. Our department is becoming one of the vibrant centers for international endoscopy cooperation and communication.
