Don't miss the warning signs - GERD treatment options
Heartburn may be related to a more serious disease. Untreated, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) not only affects daily activities, it can lead to serious complications like inflammation, Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer. When medications no longer offer relief, Dr. Rydell treats GERD symptoms with both surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
