Reducing Your Cancer Risk With Leading Care for Barrett’s Esophagus

Barrett’s esophagus is highly treatable, but it can cause cause pain and discomfort. It can also increase your risk of developing esophageal cancer. The digestive health specialists at AdventHealth Palm Coast are here to help you reduce your cancer risk and get back on the path to whole-person wellness.

Our Flagler County hospital is equipped with leading treatment options for Barrett’s esophagus, including the Halo procedure. This innovative and minimally invasive care technique has a shorter recovery time and a lower risk of complications than traditional procedures, since it leaves the esophagus intact by removing only the top layers of its lining. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed during the treatment, and help you manage any minor side effects you might experience temporarily afterward. Your comfort and wellness are our priority.

Leading Treatments for a Life of Whole-Person Wellness

Whether your digestive disorder can be cared for at home or requires a procedure, trust your compassionate care team at AdventHealth Palm Coast to help you discover the best options for you. We’re right here beside you, keeping you informed and helping you find relief. You want to get back to your normal routine as soon as possible, so we use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, leading to shorter recovery times and less scarring. These include robotic and laparoscopic procedures.
