Foregut Surgery

Treating Foregut Diseases

The foregut includes the esophagus, stomach, and upper small intestines, including the duodenum and jejunum. The team of esophageal surgeons, nurses, and staff at Washington Township Medical Foundation are experienced and highly skilled in this area.

We provide advanced surgical services in treating foregut diseases such as:

  • Reflux disease
  • Swallowing disorders
  • Premalignant conditions
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Hiatal hernias
  • Various other GI conditions / diseases

We believe that patients experiencing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract disorders deserve personalized treatment tailored to their unique symptoms. Surgery can prove to be an effective course of treatment for patients. Our surgeons have the skills and experience to handle these types of complex and highly involved procedures utilizing advanced techniques and equipment.

Minimally Invasive Foregut Surgery

Foregut surgery includes both minimally invasive and conventional procedures. Minimally invasive procedures and techniques typically involve smaller incisions, utilizing advanced technology and equipment to accomplish procedures that were once only possible through much more intrusive and disruptive means. This typically allows for less bleeding, reduced scarring, increased recovery time, and a faster return to normalcy and regular daily activities. Ask your doctor at Washington Township Medical Foundation if you have questions about minimally invasive foregut procedures.
