Mayo Clinic researchers are working to develop improved treatment for achalasia, including an endoscopic method of myotomy (POEM procedure), as well as studying the long-term effectiveness of achalasia therapies. Mayo scientists are also researching the causes of the nerve damage that leads to achalasia.


See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on achalasia on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
