Stomach Ulcer Treatment

Stop the pain.

Stomach ulcer treatment often involves a combination of medications, lifestyle changes, and potentially even surgical procedures. However, different types of ulcers require different treatments. Finding a physician who takes an individualized approach to your stomach ulcer treatment is key.

When you’ve been diagnosed with a stomach ulcer, we will typically start our treatment by conducting routine bloodwork to determine if you test positive for H. pylori bacteria. If so, antibiotic treatment could be appropriate. If we discover that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the culprit behind the ulcer, that tells us that different medications are needed. The appropriate treatment depends on your individual diagnosis.

Depending on the specifics of your diagnosis, our gastroenterologists may recommend any of the following forms of stomach ulcer treatment:

  • Antibiotics — used to treat bacterial infections
  • Antacid medications — used to neutralize and limit the production of stomach acid
  • Prescription medications — to protect the lining of your stomach and small intestine
  • Dietary changes — recommendations may include avoiding spicy foods and alcohol
  • Smoking cessation — if applicable, we can provide support services to help you quit
  • Upper GI endoscopy — to treat bleeding stomach ulcers
    Surgery — performed to remove ulcers and damaged tissues
  • Preventive care — we provide recommendations to help reduce the likelihood of developing additional ulcers in the future
