My name is Dr. Steve Horwitz. I was diagnosed with Achalasia at age 27 and have had dilations, failed Heller myotomy, and an esophagectomy with pyloroplasty in 2010 (at age 50). In addition, I was diagnosed with both gastroparesis and atrial fibrillation just prior to the esophagectomy. I have learned a great deal over last 5 years and have been able to make an amazing recovery from the esophagectomy and manage the gastroparesis and a-fib without medication or other treatments.
After sharing my story and my intentions with some incredible people in the Achalasia community, I decided to start writing a book on Achalasia. I now have the privilege of partnering with the Martin Mueller IV Achalasia Awareness Foundation, Inc. which is dedicated to Achalasia research.
In an effort to raise money for Achalasia research, I am offering my book as a free download!
In good faith, I ask that you donate to Martin’s foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to Achalasia research.
See his website: achalasia.us/ and click on Donations. Please spread the word to other groups so we can raise enough money to do proper research to find solutions to this difficult to swallow disease.
Living With Achalasia will be updated on a regular basis and the date will be shown on the cover page. Please send me your comments and suggestions and continue to share!
