“Many marvel at how our bodies are created as elegant machinery – one that seems to function with minimal errors,” said Dr. Vadlamudi. “Nowhere is this truer than within the GI tract, which is why I pursued gastroenterology. After watching my first endoscopy, I had the ability to visualize this “machinery” with great ease and treat patients with minimal discomfort.”

He is skilled in performing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), spyglass cholangioscopy, and endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) with fine needle aspiration, and celiac plexus blocks.
