The esophagus is mainly a way for your food to get from your mouth to your stomach. When your esophagus doesn't work the way it should, you may need treatment to fix the problem.
Treatment and procedures for esophagus problems include:
- Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) – An outpatient endoscopic procedure to let your doctor see inside your upper digestive system; also called upper GI endoscopy
- Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) – An outpatient endoscopic procedure to remove abnormal tissue from the digestive tract
- Esophageal manometry – A procedure to measure if the esophagus is working properly
- Halo procedure (EGD with Ablation) – An outpatient endoscopic procedure that uses heat energy or radiofrequency ablation to treat abnormalities in the esophagus
- Ph monitoring – An outpatient procedure to measure stomach acid in the esophagus; can be a catheter worn through the nose for 24 hours or a capsule placed in the esophagus through an endoscopic procedure
