Acid Reflux, or GERD, can damage the lining of the esophagus, leading to a pre-cancerous condition called Barrett’s esophagus. We have physicians that use HALO ablation technology to treat Barrett’s esophagus. HALO ablation technology is a very specific type of ablation, in which heat energy is delivered in a precise and highly-controlled manner.

HALO Ablation Technology

  • Used to treat Barrett’s esophagus, a condition which can lead to esophageal cancer
  • Heats tissue until it is no longer viable or alive
  • Able to complete removal of diseased tissue without damage to the normal underlying structures  
  • Clinical studies have shown it can completely eliminate Barrett’s tissue in 98.4% of patients

How HALO Ablation Technology Works

  • Ablation is performed in conjunction with upper endoscopy
  • The treatment is in an outpatient setting
  • No incisions are required
  • Follow-up appointment is scheduled
  • If Barrett’s tissue remains, additional therapy may be recommended
