  • Experience. Each year, Mayo Clinic specialists treat more than 10,000 people with hiatal hernias (also known as diaphragmatic hernias). Mayo surgeons specialize in repairing hernias in the esophagus and chest.
  • Comprehensive, efficient testing. Mayo Clinic offers all testing options to determine if a hiatal hernia is causing your symptoms. Testing can be completed in a few days, and your doctor will have the results quickly, so that treatment can be started promptly.
  • Team approach. Mayo Clinic's teamwork system brings together the doctors you need to treat your problem — digestive specialists (gastroenterologists), imaging specialists (radiologists), and chest (thoracic) and abdominal surgeons. All three Mayo Clinic locations have special esophageal clinics to coordinate care for people with hiatal hernia.
  • Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., ranks #1 for digestive disorders in the U.S. News & World Report Best Hospitals rankings. Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., is ranked among the Best Hospitals and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., is ranked high performing for digestive disorders by U.S. News & World Report.
