The Mayo Clinic Healthcare Oesophageal Conditions Clinic diagnoses and treats diseases of the oesophagus. The oesophagus plays a crucial role in digestion as it connects the mouth with the stomach.

If anything goes wrong in the process, you can experience difficulty swallowing, regurgitation of food, acid reflux or heartburn.
