Baptist North Mississippi Heartburn Treatment Center
At the Baptist North Mississippi Heartburn Treatment Center, we specialize in helping patients find relief from chronic heartburn, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Heartburn can happen to anyone, especially after eating spicy foods. Stress can also contribute to heartburn. But if you are among the 30% of Americans who suffer from chronic heartburn, or GERD, we can help.
How can you tell if you have GERD or occasional heartburn?
If you’re constantly reaching for over-the-counter heartburn medications, or if heartburn interferes with your daily routine, you may have GERD.
Finding relief through treatment
GERD can affect your quality of life, disrupting sleep and diet. Our team offers tailored care that begins with a comprehensive evaluation. Then, we use diagnostic testing to determine the best course of treatment.
Our diagnostics include:
- pH testing
- Esophageal manometry
- Barium esophagram
Our physician team consists of gastroenterologists and general surgeons who determine the best assessment, diagnosis, and treatment options. They have extensive experience in helping patients find relief from GERD and chronic symptoms such as bloating, burning in chest after eating, lump in throat, burping and hiccups.
A course of treatment may include minimally-invasive surgeries or medical therapies. After initial testing, each patient receives information regarding next steps for their treatment.
