VIDEO: Innovation is important to the future of gastroenterology



BOSTON – Many of the disorders that gastroenterologists treat do not have very effective treatments, so there is lots of room for innovation, according to Dr. Sidhartha R. Sinha of Stanford (Calif.) University.

Gastroenterologists should get involved in innovation early because there is much to learn, he advised in a video interview at the 2016 AGA Tech Summit. It can be a tough business, but if one focuses on the clinical need and considers the number of patients who could benefit from such advances, then innovation can be a rewarding path to pursue, Dr. Sinha noted.

The AGA Tech Summit is sponsored by the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology.
