Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disease that occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, bile flows back (refluxes) into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash of acid irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD signs and symptoms such as heartburn, regurgitation and lead to more serious conditions such as erosion of the esophagus.
Treatment for GERD and heartburn ranges from over-the-counter remedies to surgery. Get the run down on the pros and cons of your heartburn treatments.Speakers for this event include; Gary Annunziata, DO and James Conti, MD.
