GERD TREATMENT

GERD is gatroesophegeal reflux diseases is a very common clinical condition world wide. Reflux is a burning sensation or extremely chronic cough caused by reflux.

Most people respond to dietary measures and simple anti-acids and medications such as proton pump inhibitors however, there are some cases where reflux diseases can be very severe and not responding to medical management. Those cases need to be evaluated for surgical management. At United medical we have full evaluation modalities to effectively evaluate patients with reflux diseases and treat them.

These modalities include PH study which lasts 24 hours where we put a probe in the esophagus to check the acidity. Other modalities include esophageal manometry to check the motility of the esophagus and if there are any dis-motility issues. This is also done through a probe for 24 hours.

Other tests like CT chest and abdomen with contrast to understand anatomy to see if there is a hiatal hernia or bariums study which is an X-ray. We also do an upper GI endoscopy to look for anatomy and mucosal lining and if there is ulceration or other etiology if needed.

After determination of the problem, we provide the right treatment, if it is a modality problem we could be giving medications to clear the esophogus or help the motility. However, if it is truly a reflux disease that is not responding to treatment we do surgery. Such as

  1. Hernia removal if it exists. A hiatal hernia is when a segment of the stomach moves into the chest which causes several symptoms of GERD or breathing problems. 
  2. Fundoplication according to the degree of the condition

We also provide assesment and treatment for complications of GERD medication. Some people have been on anti-acid medications for a long time and it was working and no longer works, upon evaluation there is a stricture from bad reflux or bleeding from bad reflux. For those people we also have to do the proper surgery. 

We also provide the following assessment and surgeries.

  1. Achalasia and other benign esophageal disorders or cysts, diverticulum or lypomas. Such as a fixed muscle (dysphagia) that doesn’t ease by heller myotome with progressive weight loss
