The ENDOSCOPY Talks™ series brings together some of the most influential people in the field of endoscopy to discuss current best practices and emerging trends within the ever-expanding field. Each speaker will elaborate on a particular topic within Endoscopy. The talks will each be approximately one hour in length, with the time divided up between presentation and discussion.

Designed to benefit those performing endoscopic procedures as well as those interested in incorporating endoscopy into their practice, the Talks are free for everyone to view either the live or as recorded sessions. The Talks will be streamed live on the dates and times listed below.

ENDOSCOPY Talks™ is made possible through a grant by KARL STORZ and are produced and distributed through Colorado State University’s Veterinary Continuing Education Program.

This webinar will cover equipment and techniques for removing esophageal and gastric foreign bodies. Each instructor will offer their own tips for successful removal of various type of foreign bodies using case examples. With three speakers there will likely be a good exchange of “pearls of information” that the viewer will be able to incorporate in their practice.
