Overview

Western Wisconsin Health offers the latest treatment options for heartburn or chronic acid reflux disease. Frequent or constant heartburn is the most common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) — a disease in which stomach acid or, occasionally, bile flows back (refluxes) into the esophagus.  Mild heartburn discomfort can often be managed with lifestyle modifications and over-the-counter medications. But if heartburn is severe, these remedies may offer only temporary or partial relief.
