Treating a Wide Variety of Complications & Symptoms
Esophageal surgery can be a useful tool to treat a wide variety of complications,
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
