Esophagus resection is a procedure to surgically remove diseased portions of your esophagus. There are many ways to perform an esophagus reconstruction. They all include these two steps:
Removing the majority of your esophagus and surrounding lymph nodes
Moving your stomach up and attaching it to the remaining portion of your esophagus
Research shows that complex procedures, specifically esophagus resection, are most successful when performed at high volume medical centers by experienced surgeons with advanced training. As the highest volume esophagus resection center in the San Francisco Bay Area, Stanford Health Care delivers this lifesaving treatment with exceptional outcomes.
