About Your Care and Condition
Uncontrolled acid reflux can lead to serious heart burn and swallowing trouble, which leads to Barrett’s esophagus. Barrett’s esophagus is a swallowing disorder caused by normal cells in your body lining your food pipe. This disorder is commonly caused by frequent heart burn (gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD).
At Spectrum Health, we have Barrett’s esophagus experts dedicated to the treatment of this precancerous condition. Our multispecialty team is led by gastroenterologists and includes surgeons, pathologists and nurses with expertise in medical, surgical and endoscopic management of Barrett’s Esophagus.
