Foregut surgery is a specialty that focuses on treating conditions of the upper digestive tract: the esophagus and stomach. Our foregut surgeons are board certified in general surgery and have additional fellowship (specialty) training in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting these parts of the body. This includes minimally invasive surgical techniques such as laparoscopic and robotic surgery. We strive to provide our patients with state-of-the-art, expert care in a comfortable, convenient, community setting.
Our surgical team works closely with other providers and staff in Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, and Family Medicine to provide comprehensive, coordinated care.
Foregut disorders include:
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Hiatal/paraesophageal hernia
- Esophageal motility disorders (e.g. achalasia)
- Benign and malignant tumors of the esophagus and stomach
