Barrett’s Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure for patients who have developed changes in the lining of their esophagus due to long-term acid reflux. This treatment works best for patients who suffer from Barrett’s esophagus with high grade dysplasia (severe changes). Learn more about the procedure and how it can help below.
Barrett’s Ablation provides a controlled depth burn of the abnormal cells, which results in the elimination of the precancerous condition. An endoscope is used to reach the bottom portion of your esophagus. Through the endoscope, a small balloon is inflated to touch the areas in need of treatment. A short burst of energy is administered from the balloon to kill the abnormal cells. This removes the precancerous cells and reduces your risk of esophageal cancer. A few treatments may be needed to fully remove all of the Barrett’s esophagus.
