Barrett's Esophagus

Barrett’s Esophagus is a pre-cancerous condition that arises in the setting of chronic acid reflux. Chronic acid reflux can induce changes to the lining of the lower esophagus that increases the risk for development of esophageal cancer. Barrett’s esophagus is more common in those with acid reflux, and current estimates suggest that at least 5% of the population have Barrett’s Esophagus; translating to millions of Americans.

When Heartburn Becomes Cancer: Heartburn may seem inconsequential, but it could signal a much bigger problem.

OSUWMC Gastroenterologists see the following reflux related conditions including chronic acid reflux, difficulty swallowing, esophageal cancer, and  we also have dedicated multidisciplinary Barrett’s Esophagus and related disorders clinic at The James with oncology, surgery and therapeutic endoscopy providers.
