What to Know About GERD

The National Institutes of Health estimates that 15 million Americans experience GERD every day, making it the most diagnosed gastrointestinal-related condition. But that doesn’t mean GERD isn’t serious; it’s a progressive disorder that doesn’t go away on its own.

Reflux symptoms common with GERD may include:

  • Chronic cough
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Heartburn
  • Regurgitation

GERD develops when the muscle that separates your esophagus from your stomach (which is supposed to act as a one-way valve) weakens, opening for limited amounts of time when you swallow. When it isn’t working properly, digestive juices and stomach contents can flow back into your esophagus, causing damage to your digestive system. Over time, it can lead to Barrett’s esophagus or esophageal cancer.

Advanced Care for Heartburn and Reflux

Some people with heartburn and acid reflux find temporary relief with a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. However, more advanced treatments may help you experience long-term relief. We’re here to care for you with a variety of advanced diagnostic services and surgical options to help you live more comfortably.
