You have an interest in technology, how do you see developments in this area affecting treatments for GI conditions in the future?
I think that technology will allow us to continue to push the boundaries with what is possible to do endoscopically, while ensuring that our quality and safety outcomes remain of the highest standard and shared with our patients and partners.
