Millions Suffer from Upper GI Tract Disorders; We Can Help.

Patients suffering from disorders of the upper GI tract, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), trouble swallowing, or dyspepsia look to their primary care providers for relief and advice. At the same time, the diagnosis and management of these problems becomes increasingly complicated, considering the spectrum extends from minor complaints to chronic debilitating conditions. As treatment pathways become more complex, physicians and patients suffer from inconsistent and fragmented information.

  • All aspects of surgical treatment for esophageal and gastric diseases specializing in minimally invasive techniques.
  • High volume experience with an international reputation for innovation and excellence in clinical care.
  • Pioneers in the latest techniques, including transoral flexible endoscopic therapy for GERD and achalasia.
