The research group originates from surgical activities of the oesophagus and stomach, and conducts clinically oriented research examining diseases and surgery of these organs. Focus area is cancer, but we also have a long history of research regarding gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, obesity surgery and Helicobacter pylori. The aim is that our research will contribute to a decreased incidence and increased life expectancy in the people who suffer from these diseases or need to undergo surgery.
