New Heartburn Treatment Center at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford

Relief from chronic heartburn is now available thanks to the new Baptist Heartburn Treatment Center at Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi. While heartburn is a common symptom experienced by almost everyone after a spicy meal or period of increased stress, chronic heartburn can be indicative of a much more serious problem.

An increasing number of Americans who experience heartburn frequently are taking medication to manage acid reflux. Heartburn, however, is also the most common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, a serious condition that has been linked to esophageal cancer.

Other symptoms of GERD can include:

  • Chest Pain
  • Regurgitation
  • Problems Swallowing
  • Chronic Cough
  • Hoarseness
  • Sore Throat

A place for specialized heartburn care


If you're experiencing heartburn symptoms on a regular basis, the Baptist Heartburn Treatment Center at Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi offers patients specialized care designed to relieve symptoms and restore quality of life.

Could your symptoms be a sign of GERD?

Many suffer for years without the benefit of a full evaluation, and medications that control acid reflux may hide the fact that GERD is silently taking its toll.

If you suffer from chronic heartburn in addition to any of the symptoms listed above, it may be time to investigate further. The Baptist Heartburn Treatment Center offers the latest in state-of-the-art diagnostics techniques and treatment options to help ease the suffering of GERD.

Do you have GERD?

Diagnosis and treatment of GERD

Tests

Upper Endoscopy

Using a slender scope, your physician can take pictures and biopsies of the tissue in your esophagus.

Esophageal Manometry

This procedure, performed by one of our highly trained nurses, measures pressures in the esophagus and provides information about its function.

pH Monitoring

This study involves recording actual acid levels (pH) in the esophagus while you are at home and carrying out your daily activities. This information accurately establishes whether or not GERD is the cause of your symptoms.

Therapies

Medical Therapy

The array of medications for heartburn treatment is rapidly changing. Through continuing education, our physicians are highly knowledgeable in the proper use, dosage and side effects of all medications, and can help you make decisions on a medication regimen.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

When medicine isn't the best option, minimally invasive surgical procedures can be performed by our highly skilled surgeons. These surgeries involve tiny incisions and usually require only an overnight stay.

New Therapies

To ensure you get the best care available, our staff constantly evaluates and incorporates new and emerging therapies and technologies, including endoscopic therapies.
