  • BARRX Halo/ Barrett's Esophagus Ablation Treatment
    Barrett's esophagus is a condition where the lining of the esophagus changes its structure to be more like the lining of the intestine. This is brought about by the leakage of stomach acid back in to the lower esophagus after food has been ingested - this is called reflux or gastroesophageal reflux. Dr. Do and Dr. Sim use the BARRX Halo radio frequency treatment for Barrett's esophagus. Barrett's esophagus tissue is very thin and therefore responds well to the heat ablative energy of the HALO ablation technology without damaging the underlying structures. In clinical studies this treatment has proven to eliminate the diseased tissue of Barrett's esophagus in 98.4% of patients treated. Read more..
