Saint Luke’s Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center

The Region’s First Center Dedicated to Treating GERD

One in five adults in the United States have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)—and that number is growing. If you have frequent heartburn or acid reflux, we can help.

How serious are your GERD symptoms? Take an assessment

Saint Luke’s Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center’s multidisciplinary approach taps the expertise of specialists in gastroenterology, gastric surgery, pulmonology, and otolaryngology. A nurse and medical assistant will serve as your guide throughout your treatment.

Frequent heartburn or reflux is more than just uncomfortable. It can lead to significant health issues and diminished quality of life. No matter where you live, our GERD experts are available to ease your symptoms and get you back to living the life you love.

Left untreated, GERD can lead to:

  • Adult-onset asthma
  • Barrett’s esophagus
  • Erosion of the esophagus (esophagitis)
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Narrowing of the esophagus
  • Regurgitation of gastric acid into the lungs
  • Sinusitis
  • Ulcerations/bleeding

We offer screening endoscopy and medical and surgical treatment options tailored to meet your needs and lifestyle.

LINX Reflux Management System

B. Todd Moore, MD, surgical director of the Heartburn and Acid Reflux Center, is one of just three surgeons in the metro area trained to perform this innovative, minimally invasive surgical procedure.

The LINX device works as a fence around the lax lower esophageal sphincter, stretching to allow food to pass down and gas to pass up. With other surgical procedures, you lose the ability to belch. And you can safely have future diagnostic tests, including MRI, X-rays, CT and PET scans, and ultrasound.

Best of all, a successful procedure restores the integrity of the lower esophageal sphincter. It eliminates severe acid regurgitation in 99 percent of patients, effectively curing your GERD and improving your quality of life.
