GERD typically occurs when acid and bile from the stomach ends up in the esophagus. The lower esophageal sphincter, a muscle located at the bottom of the esophagus, opens to let food pass and closes to keep it in the stomach. When this muscle relaxes too often or for too long, acid flows back into the esophagus, resulting in heartburn. Occasional heartburn can be treated at home; however, chronic or persistent heartburn that''t treat the underlying cause. Long-term use may also cause side effects.
For most people with acid reflux, medications help reduce symptoms. But they don’t work for everyone, and they don’t repair the underlying cause of GERD.

Barrett’s esophagus is a precancerous condition that's been associated with chronic GERD. It occurs when the esophagus is exposed to acid reflux over a long period of time. As the stomach acid degrades the esophageal lining, it becomes inflamed and infected. Over time, cancerous cells can form.
We specialize in endoscopic radiofrequency ablation therapy. This new, highly effective procedure is a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery that has revolutionized the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus. Previously, Barrett’s esophagus was managed with watchful waiting followed by traditional surgery. Through radiofrequency ablation therapy, our experts can burn away the diseased esophageal lining to make way for the growth of healthy tissue.
