Esophageal Manometry Services: A Comprehensive Approach to Diagnosing Esophageal Disorders

Welcome to our gastroenterologist practice, where we offer advanced diagnostic services to effectively assess and manage esophageal disorders. Our Esophageal Manometry service is a crucial component of our commitment to providing comprehensive care to our patients.

What is Esophageal Manometry?

Esophageal manometry is a specialized diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the function and motility of the esophagus. It involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube equipped with sensors through the nose or mouth and into the esophagus. These sensors measure the pressure exerted by the muscles in different parts of the esophagus as they contract and relax during swallowing. By analyzing these pressure readings, we can assess the coordination and strength of esophageal muscle contractions, as well as the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the valve that controls the passage of food and liquids into the stomach.

Indications for Esophageal Manometry

Esophageal manometry is recommended for patients experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
  • Chest pain
  • Heartburn
  • Regurgitation
  • Chronic cough
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Persistent nausea or vomiting
