The Department of Gastroenterology plays a vital role in the whole medical circle of Korea where liver, gastrointestinal, colonic,

and pancreatic disorders account for the vast majority of diseases. Since the establishment of AMC in 1989, we have maintained the highest-level of treatment and research in Korea.

We have liver, pancreatic, gastrointestinal specialties and treat patients at the Digestive Disease Center, gastroenterology ward, and OPD.
Recently the Liver Center, the Pancreatic Center, and the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center were opened to meet the demand for multidisciplinary collaboration.
These centers offer fast customized treatment services to each patient from the gastroenterology, surgery, radiology, oncology, radiation oncology, and pathology departments; here the Department of Gastroenterology is taking a leading role.

Moreover, all our specialists are taking the lead in research to overcome gastroenteric diseases and continuously strive to achieve the ultimate goal of extending human life without being satisfied even having a second to none reputation.

Medical Specialities

Take a look at the treatment of major diseases in your department.

Stomach Cancer

Specialists in the fields related to stomach cancer such as stomach surgery, gastroenterology, oncology, radiology, and pathology as well as nurse practitioners always make efforts to improve the results of cancer treatment by offering accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment for each patient, reporting postoperative progress, and performing additional treatment through complementary and coordinated cooperation.

Esophageal Cancer

AMC Esophageal Cancer Center has a collaboration system effectively run by experienced specialists who are leading various fields with advanced medical skills and expertise.

Colorectal Cancer

AMC Colorectal Cancer Center improves the prognosis of patients through a multidisciplinary system and integrated treatment to provide best treatment by embracing various opinions of specialists from relevant departments on liver metastasis that often occurs in colorectal cancers, lung metastasis, and locally recurrent cancers such as intractable colorectal cancer.

Liver Cancer

AMC Liver Cancer Center established a systematic treatment system that allows liver cancer patients to receive optimal treatment in the best medical environment by ▲improving medical treatment of liver cancer patients ▲streamlining a surgery-related process and the use of surgical skills ▲reinforcing cooperation among departments, and ▲promoting a regular meeting and study for multidisciplinary treatment, and carry out high-quality researches.

Biliary Tract & Pancreatic Cancer

Around 2,000 first-visit patients with biliary tract and pancreatic cancer visit AMC and more than 800 surgeries for the cancer are performed every year. The number of outpatients has even doubled in five years.

Liver transplantation

Liver transplantation has first begun in 1963 in the United States, in 1988 in Korea, and in 1992 in AMC. Since then, AMC has first succeeded in living donor liver transplantation in 1994 and has been actively performing even living donor partial liver transplantation in adults since 1997.

Crohn’s Disease

AMC’s Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center runs the ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease clinic, the intestinal Behçet's disease clinic, the inflammatory bowel disease surgery clinic, and the clinical research clinic as well as a one-stop treatment system. It provides inflammatory bowel disease patients with professional consultations on drug therapy, surgical therapy, and lifestyle improvement including diet, pregnancy, and childbirth.

Esophageal Reflux Disease

Diagnostic tests for GERD include endoscopy, 24-hr esophageal pH monitoring, and esophageal manometry. Endoscopy examines the severity and scope of esophagitis, checks if complications are present, and allows histological diagnosis of the esophageal mucosa.
