Endoscopy continues to evolve now and in the future with advances in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Advances in therapeutic procedures consist of cheaper and more effective instrumentation, the use of novel biologicals for site-specific therapy, and the introduction of bold new approaches such as endoscopic transluminal interventions. The invention and implementation of these changes, however, is dependent on improvements in technology and the creation of an enlightened cadre of endoscopists with the knowledge and ability to be effective translational scientists.
