Joo Ha Hwang
Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Hwang specializes in early detection of gastrointestinal malignancies including esophageal cancer, gastric (stomach) cancer, pancreatic cancer, bile duct cancer and colon cancer. Dr. Hwang performs advanced endoscopic procedures including EUS-FNA, ERCP and enteroscopy. In addition, Dr. Hwang also performs per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) to resect large colorectal polyps, and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) to resect early esophageal, gastric, and colorectal cancers.
Dr. Hwang received his bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in electrical engineering. He then received his M.D. degree from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of Washington. He did his residency in internal medicine and fellowship in gastroenterology at the University of Washington and was a faculty member at the University of Washington from 2004 to 2017. He has been selected as one of ?Seattle?s Top Doctors? by both Seattle Magazine and Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.
Dr. Hwang is board certified in gastroenterology. He is active with local, national and international professional societies. He is a fellow of the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (FASGE) and is a past-president of the Pacific Northwest Gastroenterology Society.
In addition to his clinical activities, Dr. Hwang is interested in medical device innovation. Dr. Hwang actively participates in research related to treatment of pancreatic cancer with focused ultrasound. He currently has NIH funding to investigate the use of focused ultrasound for enhancing drug delivery to pancreatic tumors. He is the current president of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU).

Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery (Rhinology) and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests - Clinical outcomes in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis undergoing endoscopic sinus surgery
- Development of innovative medical devices for treatment of sinus disorders
- Founder of CORSICA, a national research registry for sinus cancer
Research Engineer, Rad/Pediatric Radiology
Bio My research interests are focused on developing and implementing novel beamforming techniques to improve the quality and diagnostic value of ultrasound images. Current projects include improving image quality in difficult-to-image patients, enhancing the sensitivity of molecular contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging, reducing common artifacts in ultrasound imaging using machine learning-based methods, and the rapid translation of these techniques onto real-time ultrasound imaging systems using GPU-based computing.
