## In most cases, the goal of treatment is to manage the patient medically to encourage resolution of the obstruction
## For soft food bolus obstruction, conservative (non-surgical) treatment may include administration of:
## Sharp objects and objects with a corrosive capacity (e.g. batteries) require urgent removal
## Surgical management
_This is the most preferred method
_Impacted food may be pushed into the stomach instead of removing it
