Diagnosis

Getting to the root cause of your condition is the first step toward recovery. In addition to taking a complete medical history and performing a physical examination, our physicians may perform diagnostic testing to help confirm the extent of your condition, assess any complications, or determine if the symptoms are due to more advanced disease.

Common diagnostic procedures include:

Treatments

Treatment for GERD and related disorders focuses on four goals:

  • Bring the symptoms under control so that the patient feels better;
  • Heal the esophagus of inflammation or injury;
  • Manage or prevent complications such as Barrett's esophagus;
  • Keep the symptoms in remission so that daily life is unaffected or minimally affected by reflux.

Lifestyle modifications are typically the first recommendation in treating esophageal disorders before trying over-the-counter medications. If you don't experience relief within a few weeks, your doctor may then recommend prescription medication, or non-surgical and surgical treatments.
