About Dr. Cai

Dr. Qiang Cai is a highly-trained gastroenterologist who has received the "Best Teacher" award three times at the Emory University School of Medicine. He is originally from China where he graduated from medical school, obtained a masters degree in gastrointestinal physiology and started his medical career before moving to the United States in 1987. Since then, Dr. Cai has obtained his Ph.D. in gastrointestinal physiology and completed an internal medicine residency as well as a fellowship in gastroenterology before joining the faculty team at the Division of Digestive Diseases, Department of Medicine, and Emory University School of Medicine in July 2001.

In addition to many advanced endoscopic procedures, such as direct bile duct endoscopy, diagnostic / therapeutic ERCP, EUS with FNA, Dr. Cai performs a variety of endoscopic procedures, some of which are not widely available. Dr. Cai offers additional advanced endoscopic procedures such as endoscopic submusocal dissection (ESD) for earlier gastrointestinal cancers and per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) for Achalasia that are only available in a few centers in the United States. He also runs several clinical trials and is working on a number of clinical research projects, mainly concerning pancreaticobiliary diseases and therapeutic endoscopy.
