Esophageal Cancer

My cancer was removed endoscopically and my esophagus was later treated to eliminate amy Barrett's Disease. For someone who had been looking grimly at the prospect of having his esophagus removed, this was a miracle. Granted, it was early early stage but it has given me full quality of life and I am indebted. Dr. Saltzman is a brilliant surgeon with great bedside manner who instills confidence. He is a leader in utilizing the latest great innovations for treating this dreaded cancer. I'm forever indebted.
