The esophagus is a muscular tube connecting the throat to the stomach. Difficulty swallowing or painful burning in the throat or chest may indicate an esophagus issue. Our team of experts seek to find the source of the issue and work to treat it.
Barrett’s esophagus is caused by chronic reflux, when stomach acids and other contents back up into the esophagus. It’s a complication of GERD.
