Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

It’s the burning sensation in the chest that results when the acidic contents of the stomach leak backwards into the esophagus. The intensity of the disease varies, depending on the cause. An endoscopy is necessary to determine the cause or diagnosis of the origin of the reflux and direct the treatment properly. The vast majority of reflux cases are resolved with medical treatment.
