Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center
The Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center (HARC) provides an individualized, multidisciplinary approach to evaluate and understand each patient with GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) and other esophageal disorders.
GERD is a chronic digestive disease caused by weakening of the gastroesophageal sphincter. This allows stomach acid and other contents to reflux back into the esophagus, mouth, or wind pipe. GERD can cause heartburn and many other symptoms. Over time, it can lead to complications including esophagitis, respiratory diseases, Barrett’s esophagus, and even esophageal cancer. GERD can have a significant impact on quality of life.
