Treatment for Esophageal Conditions

We offer patients state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical techniques, along with medication and lifestyle approaches.

The knowledge we gain from research and clinical trials helps us provide the highest level of esophageal care.

We diagnose many conditions with state-of-the-art endoscopy, a nonsurgical procedure used to examine your digestive tract. An endoscope is a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it so we can view images of your digestive tract on a color monitor. Endoscopy can also used as a tool for minor procedures to treat some conditions.

When surgery is needed, we work side by side with UC San Diego Health's minimally invasive and robot-assisted surgery teams. For many conditions, our surgeons can use techniques that leave no external scars.
