Emory Endosurgery Unit

Surgery at Emory University Hospital

Internationally recognized for clinical, educational, investigational, and academic leadership in endoscopic surgery, the Emory Endosurgery Unit for Minimally Invasive Surgery was founded in 1992 and is an adjunct program of the Division of General and GI Surgery of the Emory Department of Surgery.

Committed to advancing minimally invasive surgery through education, research, surgical treatment, and fostering collaboration in endosurgical techniques across specialties, the unit provides patients with state-of-the-art endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures while giving surgical residents the opportunity to participate in these procedures.

Staffed by Emory general surgeons and directed by Dr. S. Scott Davis, the unit's clinical and research specialties encompass foregut, hernia, bariatric, colon, and solid organ surgery.

The unit's Fellowship Council-accredited endosurgery fellowship program, the first of its type in the nation, offers two training tracks: a one-year clinical fellowship with the option of a second year of research, or a one-year research-only fellowship. The unit also sponsors didactic and practical courses in laparoscopic inguinal and ventral hernia repair, laparoscopic colon surgery, bariatric surgery, modern management of foregut diseases, and other minimally invasive procedures.
