What is an Esophageal Manometry?
Your esophagus is made up of muscles that help move food and/or liquid from your mouth to your stomach. As you swallow, valves open to allow food through and then close to make sure everything stays down. An esophageal manometry measures how well those valves function and if they are opening and closing when they should.
You may schedule an esophageal manometry procedure with our board-certified gastroenterologists like Dr. Dennis Yamamoto and Dr. Sam Nourani, at our cutting-edge surgery center located at 5250 Kietzke Lane in Reno, NV.
