Barretts oesophagus treatment

Summary

Barretts oesophagus treatment

If Barrett's oesophagus has been diagnosed, you will need to be monitored regularly. You will also need to have regular examinations of the inside of your food pipe. These are called endoscopies. They don't prevent oesophageal cancer, but should pick it up early on when there is a better chance of successful treatment. Treatment aims to lower the amount of acid reflux you have and to remove any damaged areas. Treatments include medication, endoscopic mucosal resection treatment or other surgery.
