In 2009, Cedars-Sinai Hospital, located in Los Angeles, was ranked by US News & World Report as one of America's best treatment centers for Gastroinstestinal Disorders. Cedars-Sinai has a comprehensive Esophageal Program that treats many disorders of the esophagus, including achalasia. The hospital offers nine different diagnostic tests to ensure that patients are diagnosed properly.

The team includes gastroenterologists, general and thoracic surgeons, swallowing therapists, radiologists, neurologists, pulmonologists, otolaryngologists and nurses.
