About Us Irving Waxman, MD

The mission of the Center for Endoscopic Research and Therapeutics is "to advance patient care through endoscopic discovery and innovation." Our highly trained, expert physicians and nurses live our mission every day through research, education, and collaboration with experts in surgery, oncology, pathology, radiology, and radiation oncology at weekly multidisciplinary conferences.
