The Hepatic cirrhosis Team, directed by Dr.Chuangying Hu, constantly working on the development of new diagnostic techniquestherapeutics of hepatic cirrhosis. The experts of the team are extraordinarily experienced in the  endoscopic therapies, such as sclerotherapyendoscopic variceal ligation (EVL). Multidisciplinary cooperation for transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) can be life saving in the face of a massive  variceal bleedingrefractory ascites .


Our Highlingts

Owning new endoscopy suited with advanced opticssuperior visualization systems, our department do 25,000 procedures every year.The types of gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures performed in our endoscopic center mainly include :

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD)


Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

Wireless capsule procedure

We are also leaders in advanced therapeutic endoscopy include :

1.Endoscopic Ultrasound guided diagnosistreatment, such as EUS guided fine needle aspiration, cyst drainage, celiac ganglion block, liver puncture, sclerotherapy of hepatic cyst, etc.

2.Early diagnosistreatment of digestive tract tumorsprecancerous lesions, including Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD).  

3.Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is done to check persistent jaundice, remove gallstones from the common bile duct if they are causing a problem, open a narrowed bile ducta draing, get a tissue sample for further testing.
