Acid Reflux Surgery in Mount Pleasant, SC
GERD, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a digestive disease in which stomach acid or bile irritates the food pipe lining. This disease causes symptoms ranging from mild to severe, including:
- Chest pain
- Trouble swallowing
- Feeling a “lump” in your throat
There are a few lifestyle and diet changes recommended for those suffering with GERD symptoms. We suggest trying antacids and histamine blockers and avoiding acidic/spicy foods and smoking. When lifestyle alterations don’t work for you, visit East Cooper Surgeons for acid reflux surgery in Mount Pleasant, SC. We offer minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery to improve your gastroesophageal reflux disease. This surgery is usually performed when acid reflux symptoms don’t go away with lifestyle changes and medications such as antacids and histamine blockers.
