Professor Philip Chiu is currently Professor, Honorary Consultant and Head of Division of Upper Gastrointestinal and Metabolic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Prince of Wales Hospital; Director of Multi-Scale Medical Robotics Center; Director of CUHK Chow Yuk Ho Technology Center for Innovative Medicine and Associate Dean (External Affairs), Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He also serves as Director of Endoscopy of Prince of Wales Hospital and the New Territories East Cluster, Hospital Authority, Hong Kong.

Prof. Chiu is first in Hong Kong to perform endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for treatment of early GI cancers in 2004 and Per-oral Endoscopic Myotomy (P.O.E.M.) in 2010. In 2011 he pioneered world first robotic gastric ESD, followed by world first robotic colorectal ESD in 2020. His research interests include esophageal cancer management, minimally invasive and robotic esophagectomy, novel endoscopic technologies for diagnosis of early GI cancers, endoscopic surgery as well as robotics for endoluminal surgery. He has published more than 370 peer reviewed manuscripts and 6 book chapters. He has received numerous prestigious awards including State Scientific Technology and Progress Award from People’s Republic of China in 2007, 2nd class award in Technological Advancement, Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China in 2011. His research on POEM was awarded best of DDW 2011 and first prize of ASGE World Cup of Endoscopy 2012. He was selected as Asia Pacific Digestive Week JGHF Emerging Leader Lectureship in 2016 and Global Outstanding Chinese Youth 2016. He received the Gold Medal with Congratulations from Jury, 47th International Exhibitions of Inventions of Geneva in 2019 and Spirit of Hong Kong Award on Innovation in 2020. He is currently co-editor of Endoscopy and subject editor for Surgical Endoscopy.
