Since its founding in 1978 by Robert GIULI, M.D., FACS, Professor of Surgery at the University of Paris, the structure of OESO has been that of an international network, created to set up multi-disciplinary multicenter studies on esophageal disease.

From the start, the unique goal of this endeavor has been to bring together specialists from all disciplines involved in the then new science of esophagology, in order to carry out research in the diverse fields contributing to better care of patients suffering from a disease of the esophagus.

The first President of Honor of OESO was Professor Jean-Louis LORTAT-JACOB (Paris). Then, and up until 2000, Professor Guido N.J. TYTGAT (Amsterdam), world renowned gastroenterologist, and Professor Tom R. DeMEESTER (Los Angeles), equally renowned in the field of esophageal surgery, shared this role.
Professor Robert Giuli has acted as the Scientific Director of the network since its creation.

In 2011, OESO counts 14,000 corresponding members in 85 countries of the world.
