Discussion of treatments for Barrett's esophagus:

Once the cells in the lining of the esophagus have turned into columnar cells, they will not revert back to normal. In other words, at this time, there is no cure for Barrett's esophagus. The goal of treatment is to prevent further damage by stopping any acid reflux from the stomach. Medications that are helpful include H2 receptor antagonists (or H2 blockers) and proton pump inhibitors, which reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach. Examples of H2 blockers are cimetidine, ranitidine, and famotidine; the drugs omeprazole and lansoprazole are proton pump inhibitors. If these medications do not work, surgery to remove damaged tissue or a section of the esophagus itself may be necessary. Fundoplication is the name of the surgery to remove part of the esophagus and attach the stomach to the remaining section. (Source: excerpt from Barrett's Esophagus: NIDDK)
