I just had the thermal ablation performed, this past Wednesday, and I can say with all confidence that if you have a large area of metaplaysia, that needs to be removed, seek alternative ablation therapies to thermal. The pain and discomfort are quite difficult to bear with.

Barretts esophagus is a change in the lining of the esophagus called squalmus cells. they now take on the appearance of stomach cell lining. there is no blood test for determining if barretts is cancer, only a biopsy via a common procedure called esophageal endoscopy. the following surgical techniques (ablation therapies) are: Endo Cinch (sewing); Streeta (radio frequency energy); thermal ablation; enteryx-non reversable co-polymer injectable solution into the sphincter walls. there is also laser ablation, photodynamic (pdt) and endoscopic mucosal resection (emr). note: none of the surgical procedures will cure barretts;but, they may relieve syptoms.
