A fundamental step for


with a new, multidisciplinary Platform

fostering the exchange of data, knowledge, and best practices

and harnessing the newest technologies available globally.


A unique initiative

grounded on the OESO global network of Centers of Excellence.


Through its exclusive specialization, since its creation, in the field of esophagology,

OESO has played an important role in setting the standards for innovation in this field.


The primary interest of what has been built in this international and multidisciplinary platform of

Pilot Centers of Excellence in Esophagology lies in its novel approach to the development and sharing of knowledge in all disciplines relevant to a single organ, the esophagus, and their wide diffusion with the purpose of serving the interest of patients.


Created for exchanges of surgeons or practitioners, whether they are experts or trainees,

the OESO – SEMPIRE Platform set up with the University of Stanford has been equipped from

the outset with state-of-the-art facilities for effective training, theoretical and practical, in the Pilot
Centers belonging to the network, and involves recognized international authorities in all the

disciplines represented in OESO.


The multi-disciplinary activity of these Centers of Exchange constitutes a key element for

innovation in daily practice as well as for the development of a network of second opinion.


The OESO – Stanford SEMPIRE platform programs are designed to encourage and maintain

interactive exchanges between clinicians, researchers and technicians from the five parts of the world.


The goal of the Platform is to provide qualified training and expertise at the highest level in

Esophagology, benefiting from the stamp of prestigious Institutions representing exceptional

references in this domain.
