Treatment Options for Non Dysplasia
The main treatment in cases where dysplasia is not found is to focus on
controlling the reflux disease. Typically, patients who develop Barrett’s
have severe reflux with prominent symptoms, and often have a hiatal hernia
as well. Often in these situations, medication therapy may not be adequate
in controlling reflex disease. In these cases, an antireflux procedure
may be an excellent option for controlling acid reflux disease and lowering
a person’s risk for developing Barrett’s.
As a leader in minimally invasive surgery, Hoag-USC Surgical Center for
Digestive Diseases provides two innovative procedures for controlling
LINX Reflux Management provides a permanent, medication-free solution to gastroesophageal reflux
disease. As pioneers in this ground-breaking procedure, Hoag-USC surgeons
are among the nation’s top experts in performing this breakthrough
treatment for GERD.
Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is a minimally invasive surgery of the stomach and esophagus to treat gastroesophageal
reflux disease (GERD). During the procedure, part of the upper stomach
is wrapped around the esophagus to reduce the damage caused by GERD. A
hiatal hernia may also be fixed during the procedure, which is important since this
type of hernia can increase the severity of GERD.
In addition, periodic follow-up endoscopic exams are generally recommended
in order to monitor the cells in the esophagus for changes.
