Modifications to Ivor Lewis Esophagectomy Improve Outcomes

Raja M. Flores, MD, and Brian Housman, MD, have pioneered major modifications to the Ivor Lewis esophagectomy that make it less invasive and enable patients to recover more quickly. Importantly, this improved surgical technique promotes better blood flow at the new juncture point in the esophagus and causes less trauma, which helps eliminate complications such as leaking or constriction. See the research study and watch the video that shows steps in both abdominal and thoracic portions of the surgery.
