Greetings from the course director

NEWLive demonstration by oversea faculties!

Today temporary lisence for oversea faculties from Japanese ministry of health and welfare was provided. Attendees, please enjoy global highest level endoscopic procedures in Tokyo Live.

Hello Colleagues! It is my great honor and pleasure to announce that the 1st Tokyo International Endoscopy Live Course (Tokyo Live) will take place at Showa University Koto Toyosu Hospital in Tokyo on July 2 and 3, 2016. This newly launched 2 full-day Live Demonstration will cover a diverse spectrum of cutting-edge diagnostic and therapeutic gastrointestinal endoscopy, including: ERCP, EUS-FNA, ESD, Balloon-enteroscopy, NBI with magnification and more. In addition, detailed technical aspects of POEM (Peroral Endoscopic Myotomy) and ARMS (Anti-Reflux Mucosectomy) will be demonstrated. This year, three world renowned experts from overseas will be joining us; Dr. Robert Hawes from the United States and Dr. Stefan Seewald from Switzerland, and Dr. Philip Chiu from Hong Kong. They will give lectures and discuss the cutting-edge techniques of ESD, EUS-FNA and ERCP.

The objective of "Tokyo Live" is to share and disseminate the highest-level of advanced endoscopic skills and techniques by world-renowned endoscopists and encourage young endoscopists to further refine and advance their skills and techniques and translating this benefit to our served patient population. The official language of the course will be in English, allowing attendees to clearly understand, learn and discuss the various highly advanced endoscopic techniques presented. The course will be held mainly on the 9th floor of Showa University Koto-Toyosu hospital. There is easy access to the hospital from either Tokyo-Haneda airport (20 min by taxi) or Tokyo-Narita airport (40 min by taxi). As the course director, I encourage all of you to join this memorable inaugural meeting.
