Treatments for Barrett's Esophagus
Without treatment, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) can lead to other serious issues. Diet and lifestyle changes can help reduce your symptoms. If surgery is needed for your treatment, we offer Incisionless Surgery, which is introduced through the mouth so no incisions are needed. This means shorter hospital stays, less incision pain and fewer complications after surgery.
Treatments We Provide
Acid Reduction Medicine
You may be given medicine to reduce how much acid is in your stomach. Managing GERD, or acid reflux, is an important part of preventing further damage to your esophagus.
Damage to your esophagus can cause it to narrow. We can use a tool to gently stretch (dilate) the narrow part. This widens the opening of your esophagus and brings relief to trouble swallowing.
This newer treatment uses heat wavelengths to abolish abnormal cells. As the esophagus heals, it grows back normal cells.
This surgery has a medical name of fundoplication. While surgery isn't always the first choice, this option can be worth the results. It removes the damaged tissue or part of the esophagus. What's remaining of the esophagus is then joined to the stomach.
