  • Mayo Clinic specialists have vast experience with hiatal hernias, treating more than 10,000 people each year. Mayo surgeons specialize in repairing hernias in the esophagus and chest.
  • Efficient, timely care at Mayo Clinic revolves around you and your needs. A detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures allows you to make the most of your time at the clinic. Mayo Clinic specialists run all tests and labs themselves, which means tests taken in the morning can be reviewed the same afternoon.

    Mayo's collaborative approach means two or three days often yields the same diagnosis and care insights that could take weeks in less coordinated institutions.

  • Mayo Clinic's teamwork system brings together a wide range of specialists 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 doctors take the time to listen closely. Mayo doctors get to know you and your concerns completely, and explain your options in plain language. Through long experience, Mayo doctors have learned that understanding and considering all your issues is key to developing the most effective treatment plan.
