Advancing the Standard of Care for Esophageal Conditions
Gastroenterologists Nielsen Fernandez/Becker, MD, PhD and George Triadafilopoulos, MD, discuss advancing the standard of care for esophageal conditions, including new treatments such as ablation for Barrett’s esophagus, a common cause of esophageal cancer. The Esophagus Center at Stanford Health Care brings together multidisciplinary specialists who are active in clinical trial research, which in turn advances treatment options and services to help people living with esophageal conditions, like Barrett’s Esophagus.
