highlight

The Division continues as a leading  center for Italian Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme and for prevention and early diagnosis of esophageal, gastric, duodenal tumors.

Our Activities

As part of the program of International Medical Education, the division provides the advanced training for interventional endoscopy and innovative techniques.
Advanced techniques enable us to offer a minimal invasive treatment for oncologic patients. During the last year a total of 13,725 endoscopic procedures were performed. The main interventional procedures included:

  • curative endoscopic therapy of early digestive cancer as mucosectomy and submucosal dissection of early cancer and large gastrointestinal lesions and treatment of bleeding lesions

  • palliative endoscopic treatment of advanced obstructing tumors to restore the digestive tract patency as debulking and stenting of malignancies
  • endoscopic treatment of neoplastic obstruction of biliary tract to relieve jaundice
  • preoperative diagnosis and staging of esophageal, gastric, duodenal mediastinal, bilio-pancreatic and colorectal tumors, including endoscopic ultrasonography with fine needle aspiration.
