Almost 18 million Americans suffer from chronic heartburn – not the occasional heartburn that can be treated with antacids – but the persistent heartburn that is life-altering and that may be in fact a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It interrupts their sleep, limits their activities, keeps them from the foods they love; in short, it changes the way they live their lives. Many rely on over-the-counter or daily prescription medications to help control it. And there’s also an option called videoscopic surgery that can let you live your life the way you used to, without heartburn medication. Because videoscopic surgery doesn’t just treat the symptoms, it can fix the problem.
