Esophageal Center

The Pediatric Esophageal Center specializes in treatment of the full spectrum of esophageal disorders in infants and children, including esophageal atresia, tracheoesophageal fistula, caustic injuries, achalasia and congenital esophageal stenosis. Our specialists have treated patients from all over the country and from around the world.
