This period of research resulted in presentations at several international meetings and publication of numerous peer-reviewed papers in highly regarded medical journals.  These were in the areas of luminal gastroenterology, endoscopy, hepatology and nutrition. 
Dr. Sattianayagam sees patients with all luminal, hepatobiliary and pancreatic conditions.  He has developed subspecialty interests in endoscopy and hepatology.  He was awarded a British Society of Gastroenterology travelling endoscopy fellowship to the Medical University of South Carolina, USA. Subsequently he completed a one year therapeutic endoscopy fellowship at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia (2012-2013).  There he learnt specialist endoscopic techniques including capsule endoscopy, double balloon enteroscopy, endoscopic mucosal resection, radiofrequency ablation of Barrett’s oesophagus and endoscopic ultrasound.  He was also actively involved in endoscopic research.  He acquired further tertiary centre hepatology experience during this year after previous training at the Institute of Liver Studies, King’s College Hospital, London and after being awarded a travelling fellowship by the European Association for the Study of Liver Disease, to the Hospital Clinic, Barcelona, Spain.
