He has also been heavily involved in several national committees within the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE).
Within the field of GI endoscopy, Dr. Buscaglia specializes in pancreatic-biliary diseases and the management of GI tract neoplasia, such as Barrett's esophagus and advanced adenomas of the colon. He has conducted pioneering research in natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES), therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and more recently in the area of pancreatic cancer for which he has received external grant funding. His research interests continue to focus on personalized medicine in the management of pancreatic cancer.
It is with a great sense of pride and enthusiasm that we make this important announcement.
