University of Minnesota Health experts in thoracic and gastroenterology work together to provide medical and surgical treatments for patients with esophageal conditions. Our specialists offer one of the only multidisciplinary programs in the region for people with esophageal conditions like reflux disease. We offer both medical and surgical treatments for gastroesophageal reflux disease. We are one of only a few medical centers in the state to offer LINX® Reflux Management System, a minimally invasive treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease. Many of our physicians are also conducting research to help us remain at the forefront of treatments for patients who have conditions that affect their esophagus.
