Patient stories

My story -- Seth Locketz

  • Expertise. Mayo Clinic researchers were among the first in the United States to recognize eosinophilic esophagitis as a new disease.
  • Experience. Each year, Mayo Clinic doctors diagnose and treat more than 750 adults and children who have eosinophilic esophagitis. Mayo Clinic specialists are skilled in distinguishing eosinophilic esophagitis from GERD and other disorders that may cause similar symptoms.
  • Coordinated care. Specialists in digestive diseases (gastroenterology), immunology, allergic diseases and other areas work together to diagnose eosinophilic esophagitis and to develop a treatment plan for your needs.
  • Eosinophilic Esophagitis Clinic. At Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, a dedicated Eosinophilic Esophagitis Clinic treats children and adults. Treatment includes consultation with registered dietitians and, for children, availability of pediatric gastroenterologists.
  • Novel treatments. Mayo Clinic is actively involved in research on new therapies for eosinophilic esophagitis. This ongoing research means that in addition to standard eosinophilic esophagitis therapy, you may also have access to experimental treatments not available elsewhere, such the cytosponge, to monitor treatment results.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., ranks No. 1 for digestive disorders in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals rankings.
