Minimally Invasive Esophageal Surgery

Our Los Angeles Cardiovascular Surgeons Help Treat Serious Conditions

An esophagectomy is surgical procedure used to treat disorders that target the pathway from your throat to your stomach. During the operation, part of the esophagus is removed and reconstructed. Surgery usually lasts three to six hours and requires a hospital stay of one to two weeks to recover.

Though the partial removal of your internal organ sounds frightening, medical and surgical advances have helped make this procedure safer than ever. When you choose a Los Angeles surgeon at the office Azmi Atiya MD, we make sure that you are taken care of from the moment you contact us for a consultation, to all post-operation follow-up appointments and procedures.

Is Esophageal Surgery Necessary?

Conditions that affect the esophagus can have serious consequences on everyday life. Swallowing and eating may become painful or difficult, cancer can spread into other organs, and you may even have difficultly talking or breathing. For these reasons it is important to get your condition checked and treated by a skilled cardiovascular physician before they can become major problems.

Esophageal surgery is often necessary to treat conditions such as:

  • Damage to the lining of the esophagus
  • Trauma from an accident or injury
  • Achalasia, in which the muscles do not function properly
  • Cancer of the esophagus

With the proper surgical treatment, you can recover from your condition and live life normally. Minimally invasive esophagectomies have helped many patients regain their health and well-being without the risks associated with traditional methods of performing esophageal surgeries.
