There are some things in life that we take for granted because they seem like they will never cause a problem. The ability to swallow normally is an excellent example of this. When we eat, we expect our body to easily swallow our food, but there are a lot of moving parts that need to function properly for us to be able to swallow.

Think about how much coordination and cooperation needs to occur between our brain and our esophagus, stomach, and the other components of the foregut. If something isn’t quite right with one part of the machine, the whole mechanism will not function. The problem is, how do we determine the source of the issue?

When it comes to examining and diagnosing esophageal motility issues, you need to be thorough and accurate, two aspects of patient care that we are adamant about upholding here at Institute of Esophageal and Reflux Surgery. That is why we are both excited and proud to announce that our esophageal motility lab is now certified by the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS).

The ANMS has been dedicated to ensuring that individuals who suffer from gastrointestinal issues receive the high quality care they need. Institute of Esophageal and Reflux Surgery is the only lab in the state of Colorado that carries this distinction.

If you are in need of high quality professional care to address your esophageal motility issue, contact Institute of Esophageal and Reflux Surgery today to schedule a consultation with board-certified general surgeon Dr. Reginald Bell. Our team can provide you with accurate results and outstanding care.
