Typically your child will be able to eat normally fairly soon after the surgery. Your child may need to be monitored for strictures (places of narrowing) in the esophagus, but these are treatable and in general, the outlook is very good. Almost all of the patients treated with this method to date are able to eat and swallow. Our doctors will continue to evaluate your child every year or two throughout childhood to make sure that there are no problems or complications.
