About the department

The Department of Gastroenterology  at the Samsung Medical Center offers the full range of services in this medical field. The department deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the stomach, esophagus, small and large intestine, liver and pancreas. Of particular interest is cancer treatment. To ensure an accurate diagnosis, the department has the state-of-the-art endoscopic equipment. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Kim Jae Jun. 

It should be noted that the department offers a very effective treatment method for stomach cancer in the early stages and precancerous gastric conditions of the stomach – endoscopic submucosal dissection (has been performed in the department since 2004). With this technique, it is possible to resect neoplasms of any size. This method helps the patient avoid full surgical intervention and quickly return to everyday life.

The department annually treats about 25,000 patients with liver cancer.
