Acid reflux treatment options
You may think that painful, burning feeling in your chest or throat will go away. Maybe not, if it's a caused by acid reflux. And if you ignore that burning sensation, it may cause permanent damage or lead to more threatening health problems.
Our acid reflux specialists at Goshen Physicians Gastroenterology use comprehensive testing to diagnose the cause of your symptoms and severity of the condition. We then prescribe the best treatment option for you, which may include lifestyle changes, medication or surgery.
First step – lifestyle changes
Acid reflux treatment often starts with lifestyle and diet modifications. By adjusting your lifestyle, you may find the relief you need for mild acid reflux symptoms.
Treatment with medications
Acid reflux medications can relieve moderate or severe symptoms. Some work by neutralizing stomach acid. Others help stop acid production. We use comprehensive techniques to diagnose the cause of your symptoms and determine if medications are the right treatment for you.
Medications work for about 90 percent of people with acid reflux. However, they don't work for everyone and don't repair the cause of acid reflux.
For moderate or severe acid reflux, surgery may be a treatment option. We’re the only center in the area to offer minimally invasive surgery, as well as a transoral incisionless surgical procedure, called TIF.
