About GERD

GERD most commonly occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) opens spontaneously or does not close properly, allowing for stomach acids to rise up into the esophagus, causing heartburn, irritation of the esophageal tissue, and potentially other symptoms such as sore throat and bad breath.  Left untreated, a persistent state of GERD may lead to Barrett’s esophagus, a precancerous condition which can quickly turn into esophageal cancer. People who suffer with GERD have various available treatment options, depending on the frequency and severity of their symptoms, which include: Lifestyle Changes, Drug Therapy and Surgical Procedures.
