Dr. Inoue is a world-renowned surgeon and endoscopist. He is a Professor at Showa University School of Medicine and Director of the Digestive Disease Center at Showa University Koto-Toyosu Hospital in Tokyo, Japan. Dr. Inoue graduated from Yamaguchi University School of Medicine in 1983. He completed residency in General Surgery at Tokyo Medical and Dental University, and he remained on the faculty at the University and its affiliated hospitals for more than 13 years. In 2009 he was promoted to full Professor at Showa University. Dr. Inoue's clinical achievements are numerous. In 1993 he developed a technique (cap-EMR) that simplified the performance of Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR). In 2000 he reported the world's first EMR for Barrett's intramucosal cancer, and in 2003 he reported a circumferential EMR for Barrett's esophagus with high grade dysplasia. This also served as the first clinical case of Anti-Reflux Mucosectomy (ARMS). In 2008 he performed the world's first clinical case of Per-Oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM), and to date he has treated more than 1400 achalasia patients with the POEM procedure. In 2014 he reported the endoscopic removal of a submucosal tumor (SMT) using a POEM-like procedure, Per-Oral Endoscopic Tumor Resection (POET). And in 2014 he reported the ARMS procedure for PPI-resistant GERD. His publications have a combined impact factor of more than 500. Dr. Inoue is an honorary member of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), the Russian Society of Endoscopy, and the German Society of Radiology and Digestive Endoscopy. In 2008 he became a Fellow of ASGE, and he has twice been honored with the society's Crystal award for international service (in 2006 and 2013). In 2011 he received the Pioneer in Endoscopy award from the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES).
