Biography

Priya Jamidar, MBChB, is director of the Endoscopy Program and an expert in biliary and pancreatic disease treatment and research. His main interests relate to the endoscopic evaluation and management of pancreaticobiliary disorders, including bile duct and pancreatic duct stones and strictures, pancreatic cancers, bile duct cancers, and pancreas divisum.

Dr. Jamidar has made major contributions to the field including the endoscopic management of biliary disorders in pregnancy, and the treatment of acute and chronic pancreatitis and Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. He also has expertise in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) with fine needle aspiration and biopsy (FNA/FNB), pancreatic pseudocyst drainage, ampullectomy, and pancreatoscopy.  

He is one of the world’s most experienced ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) practitioner, having performed more than 16,000 procedures. Dr. Jamidar is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology, and prides himself on his patient-centered care. He is dedicated to providing patients with the best possible state-of-the-art medical care.

“I enjoy helping patients achieve optimal outcomes by completing procedures that have often been unsuccessful elsewhere,” Dr. Jamidar says. “I like using my hands, as well as thinking through clinical problems, and this specialty offers both.” 

Dr. Jamidar says the fact that he can make a real difference in people’s lives and health is what makes him passionate about his work. “I tell patients that we always put their well-being first and that we have a lot of experience and skill in this area and want to provide the best possible care,” he says.
