Baptist Health Now Offers Breakthrough Treatment for Barrett’s Esophagus
Dr. Ali Khan offers the Medtronic Barrx Radiofrequency ablation procedure for Barrett’s esophagus.
Chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can lead to Barrett’s esophagus, a primary risk factor for esophageal cancer. Baptist Health’s new Medtronic Barrx radiofrequency ablation (RFA) system effectively removes precancerous cells with heat. Clinical studies show the system reduces the risk of Barrett’s esophagus progressing to esophageal cancer by more than 90%.
