Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.
Rebecca A. Burbridge, MD
I enjoy working with my hands and establishing personal, caring relationships with my patients. As the Director of Advanced Endoscopy at Duke, I treat patients with benign and cancerous conditions of the bile duct and pancreas. I specialize in endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic ultrasound and the removal of large, complex colon polyps. I also provide luminal stenting for patients with blockages of the esophagus, small intestine, stomach and rectum. I enjoy the challenge and satisfaction of performing these procedures. However, the most gratifying parts of my work are interacting with patients, relating to them on a personal level and providing compassionate care.
Clinical Focus and Research
I conduct clinical research on diseases of the pancreas and biliary system. This research generally focuses on advanced endoscopic procedures, including endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), used to diagnose and treat these disorders. I am also interested in the development of new endoscopic techniques to advance the way we treat these conditions.
