Barrett's oesophagus and oesophago-gastric cancer

Gastroenterology

An expert multidisciplinary team led by Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald and Dr. Massimiliano di Pietro provides state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapeutics for the management of pre-cancerous and cancerous conditions of the upper GI tract.

We have a dedicated surveillance programme for patients with Barrett’s oesophagus, squamous dysplasia of the oesophagus and familial oesophago-gastric cancer. We offer endoscopic treatment for Barrett’s and squamous dysplasia and early cancer of the oesophagus including endoscopic mucosal resection and radiofrequency ablation.

All patients with upper GI cancer are discussed at a regional MDT meeting and a joint clinic provides input from gastroenterology, oncology, surgery, dietetics and specialist nursing.
