Mayo Clinic's approach

Multidisciplinary team

Esophagectomy is an important part of esophageal cancer treatment, which can be extremely complex. At Mayo Clinic, specialists in thoracic surgery, digestive diseases, oncology and other areas work together to make sure that esophagectomy is the best treatment for you. They work as a team to manage your care, before and after surgery.

Individualized approach

Doctors at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. Doctors take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need.

Minimally invasive approach

Mayo Clinic doctors can sometimes perform minimally invasive esophagectomies, which usually result in less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery than traditional open surgery.

Comprehensive care

Consultations with doctors, testing and treatment can usually be done in a single visit lasting several days.

Accessible locations

Mayo Clinic offers geographic accessibility to Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota from most locations. Each of these three sites can be accessed by nearby international airports.
