Reduce Your Risk

Seek Early Treatment for Barrett’s Esophagus

Every bit of nutrition you take in travels down your esophagus, so when that path is painful, it not only disrupts your nutritional intake, it takes away all the pleasures of eating. If you suffer from frequent acid reflux or vomiting, or you have other risk factors, your esophagus can become damaged to the point where the cells lining this important path to your stomach begin to change.

Called Barrett’s esophagus (or Barrett’s syndrome, Barrett’s disease, and BE), this condition is quite rare but can lead to an increased risk of esophageal cancer. Your team at AdventHealth Tampa, formerly Florida Hospital Tampa, is here to help catch Barrett’s esophagus early and provide the care you need to heal. With leading-edge technologies, our gastroenterologists and other Tampa hospital team members will work to slow or halt its progress, while reducing your acid reflux and managing your risk for esophageal cancer.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.
