About the Speakers

Stephen Attwood
Prof. Stephen E. Attwood

Durham University
Durham, Uk

Stephen E. Attwood, MD, FRCSI, is honorary professor in health services research at Durham University in Durham, UK, and an independent consulting advisor on research in esophageal diseases. Most recently, he was a consultant surgeon at Northumbria Healthcare in Northumberland, UK.

Since identifying Eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) in 1989 and publishing the first description of the disease in 1992, Professor Attwood has spent his career caring for patients with EoE. He has been actively engaged in clinical trials of upper gastrointestinal diseases, including budesonide formulations for EoE; the ASPECT trial of cancer prevention in Barrett’s esophagus; BEST3, a study of Cytosponge screening for Barrett’s esophagus in general practices; Endobarrier, a UK study of endoscopic anti-obesity therapy; the LOTUS trial (surgery vs proton pump inhibitor for reflux therapy); and EndoStim, an electrical neuromodulator of the lower oesophageal sphincter for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. His clinical practice provides minimally invasive treatment for upper gastrointestinal disorders, including endoscopy and laparascopic surgery. The author of 200 publications, including many papers and guidelines on EoE, he is the senior author of the British Society of Gastroenterology Guideline on Therapeutic Dilatation of the Oesophagus and the European Guidelines on Eosinophilic Oesophagitis.
