Barretts Esophagus

Barrett's Esophagus Treatment Program

Heartburn can be more than a nuisance if it becomes chronic. It sometimes leads to Barrett’s esophagus, a precancerous condition that may cause esophageal cancer. At City of Hope, we offer one of only a few programs in the country dedicated to treating Barrett’s esophagus.

Our gastroenterologists, surgeons, nurses and other providers offer comprehensive care, from screening and diagnosis to monitoring and treatment. Your care is in expert hands with our team.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) is now City of Hope®, joining forces to expand patient access to personalized, comprehensive cancer care.
