MB BS, FRACP
Clinical Associate Professor Sydney University
Arthur Kaffes is a gastroenterologist and therapeutic endoscopist at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney and a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Sydney Clinical School.
He has a keen interest in pancreaticobiliary endoscopy, which has led to new techniques and devices for metallic stenting in benign disease, side-port endoscopic ultrasound fine needle aspiration and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in altered anatomy.
Arthur performed the first balloon enteroscopy procedure in Australia. Colonoscopy quality and maximising polyp detection are a key research interest, including polyp characterisation with zoom colonoscopy and further technologies to improve polyp detection.
Arthur hosts one of the largest national live endoscopy meetings annually at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where these techniques are often presented and discussed. He has published and presented papers and abstracts in both local forums and international meetings.
