GERD – Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease

Dr. Mendy Maccabee treats GERD – Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease in Hood River

Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease is the reverse flow of stomach acid from the stomach upwards into the esophagus just above the diaphragm. Some people experience this as classic heartburn or burning chest pain, some people have regurgitation of stomach contents with discomfort and/or belching and bad breath. Reflux can be treated with simple life and diet changes, over the counter or prescription medications, or in severe cases surgery. Left alone untreated for long periods of time, GERD can lead to changes in the esophagus which can evolve into Barrett’s esophagus or esophageal cancer. Dr. Mendy will help you understand the problem, guide your treatment, and monitor your recovery.
