Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University was founded in 1983 and this is the 19th Annual Report, a report on the work of the gastrointestinal motility laboratory having appeared each year since 1995.
Gangnam Severance Hospital is a nation-wide referral center for GI motility disorders. We have a solid multi-disciplinary team for clinical services covering all aspects of gastrointestinal motility disorders as well as very active academic program for research and education. A number of postgraduate researchers joined with our department and were active within GI Motility Research Program, making Gangnam Severance Hospital one of the major centers for GI motility research center in Korea.
During 2015, clinical activities and researches continued to expand in the our department. The 16th Recent Update of neurogastroenterology and Motility Symposium, which is one of our proud heritage in our department, was held in Seuol, Korea. The major focus of this year was ‘Achalasia’. An invited speaker was Professor Philip Chiu, Hong Kong and Professor Hitomi Minami, Japan who contributed highly successful meeting. This has now become established as an important meeting for all those interested in GI motility diseases in Korea.
During the year Dr.Young Hoon continued to serve a chair of gastroesophageal reflux club of the Korean Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and I continued to serve as a chairman of department of gastroenterology and a director, Health check-up center, Gangnam Severance Hospital
The year has been successful. I want to thank all the staff for their hard work and diligence. Without dedication of the staff, Gangnam Severance would be unable to meet the ever-increasing workload. Finally, the editor would like to thank all contributors for the Annual Report, especially Dr. Chul Woong Huh for his administrative assistance.
