The Heartburn Solutions Center
At the DeKalb Medical Heartburn Solutions Center, we understand that suffering with heartburn associated with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is frustrating and uncomfortable. Whether you have heartburn, regurgitation, swallowing difficulties or symptoms in your throat such as cough and hoarseness, GERD can make your life miserable. It affects eating habits, work productivity, sleep and your overall quality of life.
You are not alone. In fact, GERD affects millions of people – up to 40% of the population of the United States. Some try to modify their lifestyles while others take antacids or other over-the-counter medications. Others are prescribed powerful medications designed to be taken for life, and yet many still suffer and seek relief. Are you one of those? We understand and are here to help.
Our expert staff has the capability to thoroughly evaluate your condition and deliver heartburn treatment choices that will finally provide the relief you deserve. At our Heartburn Solutions Center, we will give you information on what causes GERD, GERD symptoms, diagnosing GERD and what treatment options are available. We have the latest state-of-the art technologies to test the function of the esophagus, measure acid levels and evaluate for pre-cancerous conditions. We can then deliver treatment tailored specifically for you, whether it is medications or the latest in minimally invasive surgery. The Heartburn Solutions Center at DeKalb Medical has even been selected as one of the first Centers nationally to offer the LINX Reflux Management Device, which is the latest in GERD treatments.
In addition, our specially trained Nurse Navigator assures you an outstanding experience overseeing the scheduling and completion of your evaluation and treatment. You have one single point of contact supplying access, education, convenience and support. If you would like to speak to someone about heartburn and its causes, symptoms or treatments, call 404.501.RFLX (7359).
