Esophageal services

Our surgeons provide relief for people suffering from conditions of the esophagus, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), swallowing issues or hiatal hernias. We offer a range of treatment options based on the severity of the condition, including the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures.

In addition to esophageal conditions, our specialists also treat speech or swallowing problems caused by a disease of the larynx or a chronic condition such as Parkinson’s disease. We offer specialized treatment at our Center for Voice and Swallowing and our Clinical Voice Laboratory.
