Understanding Houston's HeartburnSigns and Symptoms

Heartburn is the most common symptom of acid reflux, but some symptoms may be less obvious. People may experience belching, nausea, regurgitation, a bitter taste, discomfort in the upper abdomen or a dry cough. Symptoms can worsen after eating large meals, while lying down or bending over, and are most noticable at night. Frequent acid reflux may indicate gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a chronic, more severe form of acid reflux that can lead to serious health complications if it goes untreated.

TIF Procedure

The Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication, known as TIF, is a minimally invasive procedure for treating the underlying issues that cause acid reflux. The TIF procedure, performed through the mouth, implants an anti-reflux valve to prevent food and liquid from pushing back up the esophagus.

Hiatal Hernia Repair

Acid reflux and heartburn symptoms can be a result of a hiatal hernia, in which part of the stomach protrudes up through the hiatus, an opening of the diaphragm. This minimally invasive procedure narrows the opening of the diaphragm. Hiatal hernia repair can be an effective, long-term GERD treatment.

Laparoscopic Fundoplication

Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication is considered the standard surgical treatment for severe heartburn, or GERD. This procedure involves reinforcing the lower esophageal sphincter, which is located at the end of the esophagus, so stomach acid cannot reflux into the esophagus.
