Heartburn (GERD)

Colorectal Health

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can present as the feeling of heartburn, reflux, indigestion, difficulty swallowing, or upper abdominal pain. Sometimes it may only present with coughing or wheezing.

All of our Gastroenterologists evaluate and manage GERD. At St. Luke’s, we are able to perform all of the major diagnostic tests for GERD symptoms, including upper endoscopy (EGD), ambulatory pH testing (BRAVO), pH with impedance testing, and esophageal manometry. We commonly use medications to treat GERD, and we have endoscopic treatments like Stretta and surgery options like Nissen fundoplication.
