Benign Esophageal Disease Program

Benign esophageal diseases include hiatus hernia, gastroesophageal reflux, esophageal motility disorders, achalasia and non-malignant tumours of the esophagus. Many of these conditions can be treated with minimally invasive surgery or endoscopic therapies. Available endoscopic therapies include esophageal dilation, endo mucosal resection and radiofrequency ablation.

We see patients in our benign esophageal disease clinic on Tuesdays at Toronto General Hospital. Once per month, we also hold a multidisciplinary clinic with gastroenterology and general surgery specialists to see patients with complex esophageal problems, including atypical symptoms, complex motility disorders, recurrent symptoms after surgery and persistent symptoms despite appropriate therapy.
