Dr. Bo Shen moved to NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and works with Dr. Ravi Kiran on K pouches, J pouches and both are accepting new patients including anyone with a BCIR.
Does Dr. Shen scope pouches? Does he also do revisions if needed? Has anyone any experience with him? Thank you
Hi I've seen Dr Shen twice in the last couple of months. He specializes in endoscopic pouch procedures so yes he scopes pouches- he does it A LOT. As far as I can tell, he basically scopes pouches all day on Tuesday and Wednesdays! He isn't a surgeon so he doesn't do any revisions as far as I know but he does needle-knife for strictures and a banding procedure for prolapses so he does treat structural issues. He is a great person to get an appointment with if you have any pouch issues. He knows so much more about pouches than typical GI or IBD doctors and is much more holistic than the surgeons I've had. As far as I can tell, he is pretty easy to schedule with right now.
