Esophageal Surgery in Los Angeles

Skilled Surgeons in a Number of Procedures

From tumors to issues with acid reflux, there are an extensive range of complications that may present themselves in the esophagus and require some type of medical care or surgery. Patients suffering from cancerous tumors may require treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy combined with surgery, while other issues may only require a one-time operation.

At the office of Azmi Atiya MD, we offer surgical treatment to assist in removing or reducing numerous problems with the esophagus. Email us today to schedule a consultation.

Treating a Wide Variety of Complications & Symptoms

Esophageal surgery can be a useful tool to treat a wide variety of complications, including:

  • Esophageal cancer, which occurs when a malignant tumor with an uncontrolled growth of cells takes place in the esophagus
  • Hiatal hernias, which occurs when the stomach slides into the chest
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux, which occurs when the contents of the stomach move up into the esophagus
  • Achalasia and esophageal mobility disorders, which occurs when the muscular contractions of the esophagus become weak and interfere with the movement of food down the esophagus, causing regurgitation, difficulty swallowing, and pain
  • Barrett's esophagus, which occurs when the columnar lining extends from the junction of the esophagus and stomach upwards into the esophagus
