Our Vision - Interventional Endoscopy Service
"In addition to research on new technology, outcomes research projects are planned," states Dr. Kenneth Binmoeller. Outcome studies will be conducted on the impact of interventional endoscopy on treatment strategy, quality of life, and cost of health care.
New endoscopic technology is thoroughly evaluated in the pre-clinical setting using simulator models and animals when appropriate. The Erlangen simulator consists of a human-like frame onto which pig organs are mounted. Dr. Binmoeller uses this model to test the technical functionality of new devices. Animal models are used to evaluate biological variable such as injury and healing.
Establishment of the IES and recruitment of Dr. Binmoeller will enable California Pacific to offer our patients state-of-the-art endoscopic expertise that is currently available at only a few select centers in the world. The research agenda will continue to assure the excellence of treatment modalities in the clinical environment, as well as clinically relevant advances in the laboratory.
