NEW TREATMENT FOR BARRETT’S ESOPHAGUS
Dr. Mark Janich has introduced a radiofrequency treatment for Barrett’s Esophagus, which is designed to remove the Barrett’s epithelial lining with a short, well tolerated endoscopic procedure. Though new to Birmingham, over 17,000 patients have been successfully treated worldwide for this precancerous condition. A study published this month in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy reports 98.4% of patients had their Barrett’s eliminated with this technology (BarrX HALO).
For consideration of this treatment contact,
Dr. Mark Janich’s office directly at (205) 271-8000 or (205) 271-8015.
