  • Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal dysplasia


    As complications of GERD and precursors to esophageal cancer, these conditions require close monitoring and treatment.

    Conditions, such as Gastroparesis that affect food’s ability to move through the esophagus, stomach, and digestive tract.
