POEM Surgery: Peroral endoscopic myotomy

POEM Surgery Performed by Dr. Aryaie, is a newer technique for managing achalasia.

It is an endoscopic, in-patient procedure that can take one to three hours to perform.

An endoscope (a slender, tubular, flexible medical device with a light and camera attached) can be passed through the mouth or the rectum.

This then allows the surgeon to examine surfaces of the esophagus, stomach, intestine, and colon, without making large incisions.
