The First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University endoscopy center is the first batch digestive endoscopic professional training base named by the Ministry of Health in 2006. Therefore, the specialists coming from more than 100 hospitals have been training in our center. Our new-built center covers an area of over 1100 square meters including eight gastrointestinal examination rooms, one VIP room and one ERCP room. The completion of gastrointestinal examination performance will reach to more than 30-40 thousand cases annually. Our center currently carries out endoscopic examination items including gastroscopy, colonoscopy, dyed magnification endoscopy, duodenoscopy(ERCP), single balloon enteroscopy, ultrasonography and endoscopic treatment technologies including ESD, ESE, EFTR, STER, POEM, G-POEM, NOTES, ERCP, EUS-FNA and so on. Our center took the lead in the use of transparent cap in the endoscopic management of foreign bodies in the upper gastrointestinal tract, which was cited by the 2016 European adult upper gastrointestinal foreign body treatment clinical guidelines. We were also the first to carry out POEM technology with modified-POEM (short tunnel POEM) and have successfully completed the POEM for the youngest patient in southern China (20 months) who was diagnosed with cardia achalasia. We were also the first all over the world to apply the purse string suture and thermal coagulation to cure the Forrest Ia peptic ulcer bleeding. Our endoscopy center unites all specialists in gastroenterology and hepatology, gastrointestinal surgery department to fully integrated model of care, aimed at optimizing the patient experience and providing patients with the most advanced level of diagnostic and treatment of gastrointestinal tract disease
