Episode Info:

GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter, the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. If left untreated, GERD may lead to serious complications.

Dietary and lifestyle choices may contribute to GERD.

Certain foods and beverages, including fried or fatty foods, coffee, or alcoholic beverages, may trigger reflux.

Heartburn, also called acid indigestion, is the most common symptom of GERD and usually feels like a burning chest pain beginning behind the breastbone and moving upward to the neck and throat.

Dr. Robert Fanelli, Chief of Minimally Invasive Surgery and Surgical Endoscopy at Guthrie, is here to discuss GERD and how you can find relief from this uncomfortable condition and prevent further erosion of your esophagus.
