Dr. Patrick Hyatt and Dr. Scott Huber at The Center for Heartburn and Reflux Disease at Mercy in Baltimore offer some of the best treatment options for esophagus disorders. Dr. Hyatt and Dr. Huber provide patients diagnosed with achalasia balloon dilation, performed in Mercy's dedicated endoscopy suite.
Balloon dilation is a non-surgical procedure used to help widen the opening between the lower esophagus and stomach.
With a balloon dilation procedure, a balloon is inserted in the esophagus and inflated to disrupt the muscle. Following balloon dilation, food can pass more easily from the esophagus to the stomach.
