Superiority of Radio Frequency Ablation of Esophgeal Dysplasia

Check out this weeks New England Journal!!

>95% ELIMINATION of early pre-cancerous lesions of the esophagus with an endoscopic procedure! Essentially eliminates the need for esophageal resection!!

Current standard of care is for distal esophagectomy. Cut out a third of my esophagus and pull my stomach up to my ears! Now…ZAP!!!! ZAP!!! and it is…poof! gone

With a scope, you can almost ERADICATE a disease without the need for surgery.

How about that! Is that now a “Routine Miracle”?

Is it a RIGHT or a PRIVILEGE?
