Frequent acid reflux and heartburn can not only be painful, but can be a sign you have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Acid suppressing drugs sometimes help, but advancements in medicine have led to the development other treatment options too.

Join host, Kevin O’Connell, and surgeon, Kenneth Eckhert, MD, for dinner and a discussion on relieving severe heartburn.

Dr. Eckhert will review a full range of treatment options to help make you more comfortable, including the new minimally invasive, LINX ® Reflux Management System, a highly effective outpatient procedure that controls acid reflux without medication; and the TIF® procedure, an innovative, endoscopic procedure that treats the underlying cause of chronic acid reflux without incisions.
