The Center for Esophageal Diseases at Baylor University Medical Center features gastroenterologists, interventional endoscopists, laryngologists, esophageal surgeons and thoracic surgeons on the Baylor Dallas medical staff who have focused expertise in diagnosing and treating disorders of the esophagus.
The Center has a wide range of advanced capabilities on one campus to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the esophagus, including:
GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
- Laryngopharyngeal reflux disease and atypical reflux symptoms
Barrett's Esophagus and associated dysplasia
- Other esophageal motility disorders – non-achalasia motility disorders that lead to difficulty swallowing food or drink.
- Esophageal strictures
- Post-surgical difficulty swallowing – after surgery of the esophagus and/or stomach.
- Complications related to bariatric surgery
In addition to a multi-specialist approach to patient care, all patients are given the opportunity to participate in research studies through the Center.
Sometimes, an initially successful surgery to relieve GERD can fail for a variety of reasons. A failed GERD procedure can cause serious symptoms and should be evaluated by a gastroenterologist with experience in GERD revision procedures.
Symptoms of a failed GERD procedure include:
- Severe and/or recurring heartburn
- Frequent coughing and choking
- Voice changes
- Recurring sinus infections
