ESOPHAGEAL STENOSIS CAUSES DIFFICULTIES IN SWALLOWING
Having difficulty swallowing is a worrying symptom which necessarily requires a visit to the physician and additional tests.
Frequently, the cause of difficulty swallowing is of organic nature:
The benign esophageal stricture resulting from
- damage to the esophagus due to chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease(GERD)
- mechanical or chemical injury to the esophagus
External causes (enlarged thyroid gland, cervical osteophytes, i.e. bone spurs in the neck)
A tumour in the esophagus or in its vicinity
…but the cause of difficulty swallowing can also be liver function disorder.

COMBINING TRADITION AND INNOVATION
Dr Bjelović began his training at the Esophagus Surgery Centre at the Clinical Centre of Serbia, which is the regional centre for the surgery of the esophagus.
More than 15 year ago he began performing minimally invasive surgeries and interventional endoscopic procedures in treating esophageal stenosis of various origins, building on the experiences of the world’s most well-known centres for this type of surgery, from Japan to the US.
GREAT FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCE IN ENDOSCOPIC PROCEDURES FOR TREATING ESOPHAGEAL STENOSIS
Endoscopic dilatation (widening) of the esophagus
Endoscopic esophageal stent insertion
Percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG)
AN EXPERIENCED SURGEON WITH COMPETENCE TO PERFORM THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE ESOPHAGUS WHEN ESOPHAGEAL STENOSIS CANNOT BE TREATED ENDOSCOPICALLY
