In the past, Barrett’s patients had fewer treatment options from which to choose and were often told to wait and see if their condition would progress to esophageal cancer. Fortunately, today’s Barrett’s sufferers have much better options available to them. While radiofrequency ablation therapy has been used to treat Barrett’s esophagus for a while now, the HALO System affords surgeons far greater control. Using a HALO ablative catheter, Dr. Berookim can precisely remove damaged esophageal tissue without injuring surrounding healthy tissue.
