Our experienced Heartburn team has extensive training and perform a range of advanced diagnostic and treatment procedures to help ease patients' symptoms.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

GERD is the result of a weak muscle within the esophagus, called the lower esophageal sphincter, which acts as a reflux barrier within the body. When functioning correctly, the barrier acts as a one-way valve that allows food to flow into the stomach and prevents stomach contents from flowing back up into the esophagus. However, people who experience GERD have a barrier that does not function properly, allowing acid and bile to flow back into the esophagus.

For some people, GERD poses a serious medical problem. If you have heartburn, nausea and other symptoms of GERD or acid reflux, contact us today at 575-532-4373 to schedule an appointment with one of our specialists.

Severe cases of GERD can lead to esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus), Barrett’s esophagus (a serious complication of GERD that changes the normal tissue lining the esophagus to tissue that resembles the lining of the intestine and can lead to cancer), strictures (a narrowing or tightening of the esophagus that can cause difficulty swallowing), and esophageal cancer.
