Esophageal dilation is a procedure in which your specialist at Denver Digestive Health Specialists will enlarge (or stretch out) a tightened or clogged region of your esophagus. Esophageal dilation is generally carried out as an endoscopic exam to address GI problems that come with the esophagus's narrowing (called a stricture).

The most frequently used is balloon dilation, where the balloon is inserted at the spot of the stricture utilizing the images on an endoscope and is then inflated to expand the esophagus. Esophageal dilation is not used as a method to cure any diseases or conditions, but as an alternative procedure to relieve symptoms. Consequently, you could need to undergo esophageal dilation therapy multiple times, contingent on the characteristics of your problem. Request a consultation in our clinic for more information if you need esophageal dilation in Denver, CO.

There are several diverse reasons a person could benefit from esophageal dilation. Some of the general conditions that often result in esophageal dilation therapy can include:

  • Esophageal cancer
  • GERD (chronic acid reflux)
  • Chemical damage to the esophagus that results in swelling and narrowing
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE)

Contact Denver Digestive Health Specialists to find a GI specialist that can help stretch your esophagus to secure the relief you require.

Many patients who obtain esophageal dilation in Denver, CO may return to eating their regular diet after the therapy and after any numbness recedes. Begin by eating tender foods, such as bananas, eggs, and pudding, particularly if you still have difficulty swallowing. Chew your food well before swallowing. Talk to your provider about any issues you might have, and the food that is appropriate for you.

Problems are unusual when performed by specially trained physicians. Despite this fact, even when carried out correctly, the procedure can potentially generate problems. Such issues involve tearing of the esophagus lining, bleeding, and reaction to anesthesia. Talk to your physician about your fears and special risks for your disease.

This is my 2nd procedure with Dr. Wolfe and I'm a patient with a lot of complicated Surgeries to address. Dr. Wolfe is straight forward incredivlbly talented at her profession and has a great bedside manor. My latest procedure was a dilation and I always have anxiety at Rose my Hospital for 20 yrs. Dr. Wolfe was very thorough and held my hand as I went under. Only a few Drs are exemplary and Dr. Wolfe and Ghiselli are the best in my World. Thank you Dr. Wolfe.
