What Causes Heartburn and Acid Reflux in Atlanta?

Chronic bouts of heartburn and acid reflux symptoms are known as GERD or reflux disease. Though countless people in Atlanta suffer from occasional heartburn, 14 million Americans experience heartburn and acid reflux every day. If you are one of them, reflux surgery may be the answer needed to solve this uncomfortable problem.

If you suffer from GERD in Atlanta, the condition may stem from a variety of factors including:

  • Abnormal muscle function
  • Asthma
  • Use of certain medications
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes
  • Hiatal hernia
  • Diet and eating habits
  • Smoking habits

All of these can contribute to a malfunctioning lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the muscular ring that prevents the contents of the stomach from entering the esophagus. To correct heartburn and acid reflux in Atlanta, reflux surgery strengthens the LES to keep stomach acid it belongs.

Methods of Reflux Surgery in Atlanta

Dr. Bagnato offers reflux surgery to Atlanta residents using:

  • Laparoscopic surgery. This minimally invasive form of surgery uses a device known as a laparoscope to repair the LES through tiny incisions. Using minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques for reflux surgery, your GERD surgeon will be able to help you find relief from acid reflux and heartburn in Atlanta without need for the large incisions and lengthy recovery times of traditional open surgery.
  • TIF EsophyX. Transoral incisionless fundoplication Esophyx surgery is a revolutionary procedure that is completely incisionless, meaning no external incisions need to be made. With TIF EsophyX, your GERD surgeon can repair the LES entirely through the mouth, helping you recover from acid reflux and reflux surgery in Atlanta even faster than with laparoscopic surgery.

Reflux surgery is highly effective and capable of relieving acid reflux symptoms in a vast majority of cases. If you suffer from chronic indigestion, acid reflux or heartburn in Atlanta, reflux surgery can help you put these uncomfortable symptoms behind you.
