About

Barrett’s Esophagus is a serious complication of GERD where the tissue in your esophagus is gradually replaced by tissue similar to the intestinal lining. It is typically diagnosed in people who have had GERD for a long time, but only a small percentage of people with GERD will develop Barrett’s Esophagus.

 

In order to determine the degree of tissue damage, diagnosis is typically made using endoscopy (a lighted tube with a camera on the end). Treatment depends on the extent of inflammation and damage to the esophageal mucosal lining. After your complete evaluation, ask your provider about the extent of mucosal damage and the best lines of therapy.

Barrett’s Esophagus can be complicated, but it can be treated—TRUST A SPECIALIST. Schedule your consultation today.
