Acid reflux (GERD)

Treatment options

Without treatment, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), can lead to more serious health problems. Our specialists can help you get relief. More importantly, we want to help you with long term solutions to keep GERD from progressing.

Treatment is sometimes as simple as diet or lifestyle changes. But too often, that's not enough. When even a piece of toast causes discomfort, you're understandably frustrated. Our specialists are experts in disorders of the esophagus. We have every kind of technology to assess your GERD and lead us to the best treatment options. If surgery is needed, we have the least invasive, most advanced care in the area. Learn about treatments here.
