Why Choose Florida Hospital?
One of the most rare esophageal disorders, achalasia usually occurs in adults between the ages 25-55, but may also occur in children. Because the disorder results in failure to relax and narrowing of the esophagus, achalasia makes swallowing difficult and can cause chest pain and discomfort. Using leading edge therapies and surgical procedures, the physicians at Florida Hospital Digestive Health Center have the expertise to treat achalasia. If you exhibit the symptoms of achalasia, make an appointment with your Florida Hospital physician today.
