In jejunal interposition, our surgeons will replace the missing section of your child’s esophagus using a section of the jejunum (the middle part of the small intestine). The jejunum is thin enough to be placed behind the trachea, in the normal position of the esophagus in some cases. In others, it is placed under the breastbone.
