Welcome to our Achalasia Community
Our Mission Statement
This web site has been created to help educate and provide support to those
people who suffer from Achalasia, and is dedicated in helping them and their
families who share in the suffering.
Achalasia is a rare medical disorder, so rare that many doctors will never see a
case in their lifetime, and if they do, may easily misdiagnose the disorder.
Achalasia is a motility disorder of the esophagus, causing food to lodge in the
esophagus rather than moving easily and quickly into the stomach as would
happen normally. Achalasia is often a progressive disease requiring expert skill of
a GI specialist having demonstrated a solid history of several hundred successful
surgeries, of which there is more than one surgical option. We have personally
discovered that it is helpful to become very well educated about *all* of the aspects
surrounding Achalasia to help ensure that you will achieve the best possible
We have included many resources and helpful links on this website to help you
better understand the difficulties associated with Achalasia. We are also here to
support family members of those afflicted with this disease. We recognize the
difficulty often experienced in better understanding and accepting this disease.
We represent a supportive, knowledgeable network of both Achalasia sufferers,
family members and dedicated friends. It is our hope and determination to help
increase awareness, encourage education and research
Patient support is a very important factor during hard times with this disease.
That's where we play a part for you, to be there when you don't know where to turn
or what to do next! It can be a long and hard journey alone through the ups and
downs of Achalasia. We hope you can use the information provided on this site to
help you in your journey, and we are more then willing to support you in any way
