Esophageal Surgery – Esophagectomies and Other Procedures Performed by Experienced Gastrointestinal Surgeons
Esophageal surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedure at Florida Medical Clinic, accounting for a significant number of the more than 15,000 gastrointestinal operations we perform each year. We perform both traditional and minimally invasive esophagectomies (procedures to remove part or all of the esophagus), along with anti-reflux procedures for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other complex operations. Using today’s most advanced techniques, we provide the highest possible caliber of care for patients with esophageal cancer, achalasia, paraesophageal hernias, GERD, and other conditions affecting the esophagus. Plus, all of our surgeons are supported by a team of gastroenterologists, oncologists, and other highly specialized medical professionals, ensuring that every patient who turns to us for esophageal surgery or non-surgical treatment recieves comprehensive, streamlined care.
Florida Medical Clinic’s Department of Surgery offers today’s latest advances in esophageal surgery, including:
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Robot-assisted surgeries
- Endoscopic resections
- Preventive surgeries for pre-cancerous conditions (e.g., high-grade dysplasia)
Florida Medical Clinic also offers numerous non-operative therapies, such as radiofrequency ablation, that can be used to treat certain esophageal conditions without the need for traditional surgery. These options may help patients return to their lives more quickly than would be possible following an extensive operation.
To determine which therapies are the most promising options for a specific patient, our team considers many different factors, such as the type and severity of symptoms that the patient is experiencing and the patient’s prior response to other non-surgical treatments. In this way, we are able to make individualized recommendations for patients who are considering esophageal surgery, helping them make educated treatment decisions that reflect their own unique needs.
