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.
Trusted care. Advanced technology.
Using today’s most advanced techniques, we provide the highest caliber of care for patients with esophageal cancer, achalasia, paraesophageal hernias, GERD, and other conditions affecting the esophagus. We are supported by a team of gastroenterologists, oncologists, and other highly specialized medical professionals. This ensures that when you turn to us for esophageal surgery, your care will be streamlined and convenient.
Florida Medical Clinic’s Department of Surgery offers the latest advances in esophageal surgery, including:
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Robot-assisted surgeries
- Endoscopic resections
- Preventive surgeries for precancerous 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 recover faster than would be possible following an extensive operation.
To determine which therapy is best for you, our team considers many different factors, such as the type and severity of symptoms that you’re experiencing and your prior response to any other non-surgical treatments. In this way, we’re able to make individualized recommendations for those who are considering esophageal surgery, allowing you to make educated decisions that reflect your own unique needs.
