Help for Acid Reflux


– Acid reflux occurs when stomach acid backs up in your esophagus. Medicine can help, but sometimes
surgery is recommended. Dr. John Williams at Coliseum
Medical Centers explains. – The main symptom is commonly heartburn or chest pain, indigestion. You can have hernias associated
known as hiatal hernias. They can be associated with obstruction where you can’t swallow,
food gets trapped, and you can have the acid reflux. The traditional operation
is a Nissen fundoplication which is a 360-degree wrap of the stomach around the
esophagus at the hiatus. With robotic techniques, we
are able to repair the hernia. – To learn more or find a physician, call Consult-A-Nurse at 478-746-4646 or visit coliseumhealthsystem.com. I’m Beverly Herbert,
