Peptic Ulcer Disease Treatment

Guiding you to the right treatment plan.

Peptic ulcer disease refers to painful sores or ulcers in the lining of the stomach or the first part of the small intestine, the duodenum. This usually improves with home treatment, but some patients experience persistent symptoms that require professional medical attention. At Florida Medical Clinic, we can help you find effective ways to manage pain, bloating, nausea, and other related gastrointestinal symptoms caused by peptic ulcer disease.

Most patients who turn to Florida Medical Clinic for peptic ulcer disease treatment find relief from conservative, nonsurgical treatments. Our experienced gastroenterologists may recommend a combination of medications to:

  • Limit acid production
  • Provide a protective coating for the stomach and intestines
  • Destroy bacterial infections

We also offer nutritional counseling to patients with peptic ulcer disease. While dietary changes don’t heal ulcers, avoiding certain foods can limit the amount of irritation that occurs, in turn helping to alleviate painful symptoms. For instance, avoiding spicy foods, limiting alcohol intake, and eating smaller meals can be beneficial for individuals with peptic ulcers. These strategies, combined with other lifestyle changes, can also help reduce the likelihood of developing additional ulcers in the future.

In some situations, peptic ulcer disease might not improve with conservative treatment, at which point surgery might become necessary. For instance, a gastrectomy (a procedure in which part of the stomach is removed) might be recommended, or a pyloroplasty (a procedure to widen the opening of the bottom of the stomach) may be suggested instead. Our gastroenterologists will help you explore your treatment options and make the most informed decision possible.
