The clinic also specializes in benign esophageal diseases including hiatal and paraesophageal hernias, surgical management of acid reflux, and motility disorders.

Together with the outstanding support staff of nurses, nurse practitioners and physician-assistants, our surgeons attract patients from all over Texas, and from across the United States.
