EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR HEARTBURN & ACID REFLUX (GERD)

When stomach acid backs up into your esophagus, it’s called acid reflux or GERD. When GERD occurs, it may cause may different symptoms, which include:

  • Burning sensation in your chest (heartburn) or throat
  • Sour taste in your mouth
  • Chest or abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia)
  • Dry cough
  • Hoarseness or sore throat
  • Sensation of a lump in the throat
  • Regurgitation of food or sour liquid (acid reflux)

MANY TREATMENTS, INCLUDING SURGERY FOR SERIOUS PROBLEMS

Many people with milder GERD symptoms experience relief by making changes to their lifestyle such as losing weight or reducing caffeine. Sometimes people need to take over-the-counter medications such as antacids, H2 blockers, or PPIs. People who need to take medication regularly or who experience severe symptoms frequently require testing such as upper endoscopy to directly visualize the lining of the esophagus. For over 20 years, HIllmont GI has been helping patients with GERD, performing state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures with expertise and partnering with our patients to help guide them over the long term with management of their condition.
