If you have chronic acid reflux or frequent heartburn, you are at risk for a condition called Barrett’s esophagus.
Barrett’s esophagus is a change in the lining of the esophagus, the swallowing tube that carries foods and liquids from the mouth to the stomach. Left untreated, it can lead to cancer of the esophagus. About 3.3 million American adults have Barrett’s. But with modern medical technology, they can be cured.
If you have Barrett's esophagus, Adventist Midwest Health offers a variety of treatment options. Consult with your physician to learn more about which options are right for you. Don't have a physician? Call our referral center at 630-856-7525 to find a doctor today!
