What is the Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy or Endoscopic Myotomy through the mouth?
Taking advantage of the layered arrangement of the digestive tube, a protective cushion is created in the submucosa and with special scalpels that are handled through the endoscope, the diseased muscle is accessed.
By treating the affected muscle areas, it is possible to restore the passage of food from the esophagus to the stomach.
Pioneers in POEM
As we have seen, POEM can treat all types of achalasia, other esophageal motor disorders, esophageal diverticula including Zenker’s diverticulum, and gastroparesis.
At Endos Advanced we are committed to this procedure of which we are pioneers in our country. In addition to doing it on a regular basis, we are a national and international teaching center and we participate in various international studies on POEM.
