Reflux and Heartburn Treatments

Treatments for GERD at the Heartburn Center at Swedish Medical Center, Denver

The treatment and management of GERD or heartburn includes lifestyle changes, medications and in more severe cases, surgery. While medications may relieve the symptoms of GERD, they do not correct or stop the reflux completely. Additionally, the side effects from medications and the life-long commitment to taking them may be unwanted and overwhelming. For patients looking for a more permanent solution, surgery may be necessary.
