JR Siewert’s clinical focus was oncological surgery, especially of the upper gastrointestinal tract but also functional, benign diseases of the esophagus and stomach. These were also the main subjects of his clinical research: refinements of the technique for esophageal and gastric surgery, prognostic factors of esophageal and gastric cancer, neoadjuvant therapy, and response prediction. The classification of adenocarcinomas of the esophagogastric junction in Type I, II, and III is combined with his name.

Read his full biography in Diseases of the Esophagus, Volume 32, Issue 9, September 2019.
