In 2006, The Society conducted a survey into the number of cases as per the selected operative procedures in the “Training Curriculum for Board Certified Surgeons in Gastroenterology“ [using the “New Classification of surgical difficulty” (since the 2009 review application)], and differences in the incidence rates of Intraoperative death, hospital mortality, and complications, with or without the involvement of a Certified Surgeon in Gastroenterology (hereafter, “Certified Surgeon”), using a representative selection of operative procedures from amongst them.

The same type of survey was also conducted in 2007, and published on the Internet in the report on the fiscal 2007 and 2008 surveys respectively.  For fiscal 2009, the adoption of endoscopes in the major operative procedures was also surveyed in addition to the breadth covered by the former surveys regarding cases in 2008.  The response rate was 68 percent, which equates to over 410,000 cases in total.  This report is based on the survey results for this fiscal year with a comparison made to past surveys.
