GERD Treatment

Controlling symptoms of GERD.

If you’re having issues controlling your gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) we’re here to help. GERD is best managed with a comprehensive treatment plan.

At Florida Medical Clinic, our gastroenterologists work one-on-one with you to develop an effective treatment plan, which typically consists of lifestyle changes, acid reflux medications, and potentially even surgery to help reduce pain and discomfort. Although surgery is not necessary for most patients, those who do require an operation are in steady hands; we are highly experienced in the field of gastrointestinal surgery.

When treating gastroesophageal reflux disease, we consider a number of factors, such as the specific symptoms you are experiencing, when they’re most severe, and which triggers tend to make them worse. Using this information, we then create an individualized GERD treatment plan consisting of options such as:

  • Lifestyle modifications (e.g., elevating the head of the bed to prevent acid reflux during sleep, and losing excess weight if applicable)
  • Short-acting, over-the-counter antacid medications or longer-acting prescription options, such as H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease surgery to prevent food and acid from traveling back up the esophagus after consumption

Our treatment plans also take into account the potential long-term complications of acid reflux, such as Barrett’s esophagus, and work to reduce the risk of these conditions developing.

Your GERD treatment plan is noted in our electronic records system, making it simple to track past responses to treatment and determine which options are the most effective for you. And, these records are instantaneously accessible to your Florida Medical Clinic physicians. As a result, your gastroenterologist, primary care physician, and other medical specialists can effortlessly review charts and communicate regarding your treatment.
