Heartburn, reflux and GERD treatment

Heartburn may be a symptom of indigestion, which can cause uncomfortable fullness, nausea and a burning or discomfort in the upper abdomen. When symptoms indicate a long-term condition, our experts offer advanced care. Signs of GERD or another chronic digestive issue include:

  • Acidic taste in the back of the throat
  • Burning sensation in the throat or painful swallowing
  • Chronic stomach upset or pain
  • Difficulty swallowing or a feeling of food stuck in the throat or chest
  • Pain or a burning feeling in the chest, which can worsen after lying down, bending over or eating
  • Persistent dry cough and/or hoarseness

Your GI specialist may recommend dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments and over-the-counter medication to manage symptoms. Additional treatment options may include:

  • Endoscopy to collect tissue samples, observe an internal organ or guide GI surgery
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Radiofrequency ablation (using heat to reduce or stop pain)
