Introduction to the Division of Gastroenterology
The Division of Gastroenterlogy was established in 1976 when led by Dr. Gu0-Biao Zheng. For many years，making continuous efforts base on the current achievements，we have made great advances，including upper UGI endoscopies，colonfibroscopy，endoscopic therapies for gastroesophageal varices，GI bleeding，polypectomy，general ultrasound，and ultrasound-guide liver biopsy，ultrasound-guide percutaneous ethanol injection，and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.
The training protocol of residents of Division is aimed to help them to diagnose and treat different gastroenterological diseases. We hold case-presentation in the morning meetings，literature or journal reading，mortality conference discussion，endoscopy & imaging reading study seminars and combined meetings with General Surgery，Radiology and Pathology.
Every month，the number of case of general UGI endoscopy is approximately 300，upper abdominal sonography 600，colonfibroscopy 40. Inpatients per month exceed 150 and outpatients 2,000. This Division earns a good reputation in southern Taiwan.
In the future，based on all staff's endeavors，improving the quality of service in clinical medicine，making a breakthrough in technology， devoting to training and medical research are required in order to serve more patients and provide better quality of healthy lives.
