The HALO ablation technology is used to treat pre-cancerous conditions of the esophagus called Barrett’s Esophagus. Barrett’s Esophagus is caused by chronic GERD.
The HALO ablation technology is a very specific type of ablation, in which heat energy is delivered in a precise and highly-controlled manner, and has been used to treat Barrett’s esophagus for more than fifteen years. The benefit of using the HALO ablation technology is that your doctor is able to completely remove the diseased tissue without damaging the normal, underlying structures of the throat.
The procedure is performed in combination with upper endoscopy. This can be done in an outpatient setting. This procedure requires no incisions, and takes about 15 minutes.
