An Interview Featuring Dr. Kenneth Koch Focusing On Gastroparesis - August 2020

September 14, 2020

AGMD is privileged to present an Interview with Kenneth Koch, MD

During the interview, Dr. Koch will be talking about gastroparesis.

Towards the end of the program, there will be ample time for questions from the audience participants.

Kenneth L. Koch, MD is Professor of Medicine, Section on Gastroenterology & Hepatology, at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. He has a career-long interest in understanding pathophysiological mechanisms of nausea and gastroparesis. Dr. Koch has studied extensively gastric myoelectrical activity (GMA) using serosal electrodes in animals and cutaneous electrodes in the study of normal 3 cpm GMA in humans. These studies have led to understanding gastric dysthymias are present in various nausea syndromes. In addition, a functional obstructive gastroparesis subtype was described that reflects pyloric dysfunction and response to endoscopic therapies with botulinum toxin A injection or balloon dilation. Dr. Koch is a PI in the NIH-sponsored Gastroparesis Clinical Research Consortium. Dr. Koch has written 143 peer-reviewed publications, 43 chapters, and 2 books.
