Laparoscopic Heller’s Myotomy for Achalasia

Heller myotomy is a surgical procedure in which the muscles of the lower esophageal sphincter are cut, allowing food and liquids to pass to the stomach unhindered. It is used to treat achalasia, a disorder in which the lower esophageal sphincter fails to relax properly making swallowing impossible. Laparoscopic Heller’s Myotomy is performed using minimally invasive techniques which minimise surgical risk and speed recovery significantly.
