Acid Reflux Disease? We Have Answers.
Are you one of the millions who suffer from GERD? The most common complaints gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients have are severe heartburn, sour taste in the mouth, and regurgitation of acid and food when laying flat. Reflux is often caused from a dysfunctional valve. In GERD, this valve loses its protective mechanisms. The refluxing acid may lead to chronic heartburn, hoarseness, recurrent pneumonias, inflammation in the esophagus and even cancer, if left untreated.
Medical treatment of GERD primarily consists of dietary modification, weight loss and medications to reduce the amount of acid secreted by the stomach. Many still have significant symptoms and are considered candidates for surgical correction. A NEW incisionless procedure, known as Transoral Incisionless Fundiplication, or TIF, is available at Southside Regional Medical Center and provides lasting relief for acid reflux patients. This innovative treatment has brought much needed relief to patients who have suffered for years with this condition.
Imagine…no more pain, no more pills…no more heartburn.
