Pediatric Esophageal Surgery

If your infant or child has frequent vomiting, a persistent cough, or difficulty eating, he or she may be living with acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). In these conditions, stomach acid flows backward from the stomach into the esophagus. This causes pain and damages the esophageal lining.

The general and thoracic surgical experts at Children’s National Hospital have vast experience performing esophageal surgery for children.
