Foregut refers to the upper portion of the GI tract – the esophagus and stomach. The most common disease of the foregut is GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease (GERD); however many other entities such as LaryngoPharyngeal Reflux (LPR), achalasia, gastroparesis, and esophageal and gastric cancer are disorders of the foregut too.
We are a unique team of surgeons, nurses, and staff who specialize in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of patients with disorders of the esophagus and stomach. We also engage in clinical research and so are able to provide patients with the most current treatments available.

- At SOFI we perform both endoscopic and minimally invasive surgical treatment of foregut diseases, including the EsophyX TIF and LINX reflux management system for patients with GERD.
