Do you experience acid reflux or heartburn at least twice a week? Or have you been treating your symptoms with medications for six months or longer? If so, you may have gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, a chronic digestive disease that occurs when stomach acid or bile flows back into your esophagus.
Left untreated, GERD can cause Barrett’s esophagus, narrowing of the esophagus and even esophageal cancer.
The good news is it’s treatable. At Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, we can offer relief and treatment for GERD and Barrett’s esophagus as well as chronic acid reflux, chronic heartburn, hiatal hernia and esophageal motility disorders. We offer you advanced treatments using the latest technology and innovations.
