What We Treat

What We Do

Hartford HealthCare Swallowing, Reflux and Esophageal Disorders Program is a comprehensive, patient-centered initiative focused on providing care for all patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), heartburn, swallowing, precancerous and cancerous lesions of the esophagus and stomach as well as related conditions.  

We provide a coordinated and multidisciplinary approach to what we do. What sets us apart is that the treatment algorithms that we use to treat our patients are based on best-practice guidelines across various specialties to get to the root cause of your symptoms and deliver clinical excellence.

We strongly believe in the team approach. Our vision includes gastroenterologists and surgeons working hand-in-hand along with disciplines such as nutritionists, speech pathologists and others as appropriate in a collaborative approach towards a common goal: getting you better. 

You are our priority. Patient education and participation in treatment decisions are of most importance. You will have a designated expert contact (nurse navigator) readily available to help navigate through the testing and treatment phase. Our mission is to deliver exceptional care with outstanding patient satisfaction in a time efficient manner.
