Obesity and Esophageal Disorders is a comprehensive review on the impact of obesity on esophageal disorders and how to approach, recognize and treat those disorders. Covering the critical gap in awareness on the impact of obesity on esophageal disorders, this reference presents the newest diagnostic technologies, including high resolution manometry, EndoFLIP, wireless pH monitoring, and mucosal integrity devices. The book shows treatment options like bariatric surgery and endo-bariatrics that decrease the latency period for diagnosis and management of patients. Finally, the understanding of the potential effects of different bariatric surgeries on esophageal motility is explored.

This importance reference serves researchers looking to determine future projects by providing novel pathophysiologic mechanisms about how obesity affects GERD and esophageal motility. It serves clinicians, surgeons and trainees with guidance on diagnostic approaches, management options, and how to recognize/treat post-surgical esophageal complications of patients with obesity.
