In the past many reports and series of cases have emanated from endoscopy clinics of this country and elsewhere. These studies generally reflect the experiences of groups located in large-population areas. Although the information derived from these studies is extremely valuable for instruction and for statistical data, it does little to let the young endoscopist, entering practice, know what to expect if he goes into a smaller community. Unfortunately, the experience of the endoscopist in a smaller community is rarely documented because he usually dies before he has the chance to compile and publish the findings of his life's work. However, some reports* are available from smaller endoscopy centers. These do much to bridge the gap in experiences from the large "Clinic" to private practice of endoscopy.
