Treating chronic heartburn effectively involves determining the exact cause of the reflux. At the Nash Heartburn Treatment Center, all of our diagnostic testing is performed at Nash Day Hospital.
This procedure uses a slender scope to take pictures of your esophagus and stomach to evaluate any damage that may have been caused by exposure to acid reflux.
This procedure, which is performed by one of our highly trained nurses, assesses how well your esophagus is functioning.
Ambulatory pH testing / BRAVO/ Restech
This records your pH levels for 24, 48 or 96 hours to give an accurate portrait of your acid reflux.
This X-ray gives us a "real time picture" of your esophagus.
The array of medications for heartburn treatment is rapidly changing. Through continuing education, our physicians are highly knowledgeable in the proper use, dosing and side effects of all medications, and can help you make decisions on medication's benefits versus expense.
Minimally Invasive Surgery
When medicine isn't the best option, minimally invasive surgical procedures can be performed by our world-class surgeons. These surgeries involve tiny incisions and usually are performed on an outpatient basis and patients usually go home the same day.
This 24-hour test measures the flow of liquid and pH levels while on or off acid suppression medications.
Gastric Emptying Study
