Comprehensive Esophageal Care
At NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, we care for people with all types of esophageal disorders, from the most common to the rarest:
- Achalasia and other swallowing disorders
- Barrett’s esophagus
- Eosinophilic esophagitis
- Esophageal atresia
- Esophageal cancer

Minimally Invasive Esophageal Surgery
When lifestyle changes and medications are insufficient to treat an esophageal disorder, our skilled surgeons use minimally invasive approaches whenever possible to treat esophageal cancer (including removal of the esophagus, or esophagectomy), Barrett’s esophagus, achalasia, and GERD, operating through smaller incisions. The result: less pain after surgery and a faster return to your normal activities.
