The Digestive Center at Shelby Baptist
If you’re suffering from constant heartburn or acid reflux, it may be time to find out the real cause.
Heartburn can be symptom of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), which is caused by the gastric acid flowing from the stomach into the esophagus. If left untreated, GERD can damage the esophagus, and may increase your risk for esophageal cancer.
You don’t have to hurt. The Digestive Center at Shelby Baptist can help relieve your symptoms now and treat the cause of your GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) to prevent future health problems. Our GI specialists will build an individualized
treatment plan based on your condition, your needs and the life you lived before the pain.
