Am I a candidate for an esophageal stent?
An esophageal stent is recommended for patients with medical conditions like esophageal cancer, esophageal stricture, and esophageal perforation. We recommend you refer to one of our certified specialists for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
How do I prepare for an esophageal stent?
You will be asked to stop eating and drinking one night before your procedure. If you’re taking medications inform your endoscopist.
What can I expect after the procedure?
You might have mild discomfort for a day or two. Your specialist will give you instructions about your follow-up care and diet.
