    WELCOME BACK YOU'RE WATCHING CT STYLE

    MILLIONS OF AMERICANS SUFFER FROM ACID REFLUX IN SOME CASES, IT IS A BIGGER PROBLEM THE HOSPITAL NOW HAS A PROGRAM TO TREAT THE DISEASE DR HUSSEIN AND DR

    JONATHAN — JOIN US THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE FIRST, EXPLAIN WHAT IS GERD? THIS IS A SYMPTOM RELATED TO ACID AND FLUTE — FOOD CLIMBING UP TO THE ESOPHAGUS A LOT OF TIMES IT IS ACID, SOMETIMES IT CAN BE BILE OR ALKALINE MATERIAL IT CAUSES IRRITATION AND PAIN

    WHAT CAUSES IT? THE MOST COMMON REASON IS THE LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER THE MUSCLE AT THAT LOCATION BETWEEN THE ESOPHAGUS IN THE STOMACH CAN RELAX TOO MUCH THAT CAN MAKE THE ACID ABLE TO CLIMB UP THE ESOPHAGUS SOMETIMES PEOPLE HAVE A HERNIA THAT CAN BE AN ISSUE TOO WHERE IT IS JUST WIDE OPEN

    THAT MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR PATIENTS WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS? THERE ARE A NUMBER OF TREATMENTS THEY TYPICALLY START WITH LIFESTYLE CHANGES MOST ESTATE — CHANGE WE EAT, MAY BE ELEVATING THE HEAD OF THE BED SO YOU YOU CAN ACCELERATE TO MEDICATIONS, ANTACIDS THAT COME IN VARIOUS STRENGTHS FROM YOUR TYPICAL TUMS TO THE PURPLE PILLS PRILOSEC, PREVACID

    WINDOWS FAIL, THERE IS SURGERY THERE ARE VERY GOOD SURGICAL OPTIONS THAT CAN CURE THIS PROCESS EXPLAINED TO OUR VIEWERS WITH THE PROCEDURE IS? THE LINKS PROCEDURE IS — IT LOOKS LIKE A SMARTIES BRACELET, BUT IT IS LITTLE MAGNETS ON A BRACELET IT GETS WRAPPED AROUND THE LOWER ESOPHAGUS ENDED WORKS AS A NEW SPHINCTER WOULD WORK IT OPENS AND CLOSES BECAUSE OF MAGNETS

    FASCINATING WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME? IT IS OUTPATIENT SURGERY PATIENTS GO BACK TO READING A PRETTY NORMAL DIET RIGHT AWAY THERE ARE MULTIPLE SURGERIES THAT SURGERY WORKS WELL FOR SOME

    THERE ARE OTHER PROCEDURES I CONSTRICTION THE VALVE WITHOUT DOING THE SEIZURE AND OPERATING THROUGH THE ENDOSCOPE THERE ARE MORE TRADITIONAL PROCEDURES WHERE I WOULD TEND TO USE ROBOTS TO STRENGTHEN THE VALVE ITSELF IF YOU IGNORE THIS PROBLEM, WHAT COULD HAPPEN? BESIDES BEING IN PAIN THERE IS PAIN

    SOMETIMES, THERE IS MEDICATIONS THAT CAN HELP ALLEVIATE DISCOMFORT IF LEFT UNTREATED, THERE IS ONGOING ACID REFLUX INJURY AND THERE IS PAIN GOING ON WHERE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WAKE UP AT NIGHT WITH DISCOMFORT YOU WONDER BECAUSE OF ALL THAT ACID INJURY IF THEY CAN START DEVELOPING PRECANCEROUS CHANGES A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF PATIENTS WILL DEVELOP — THAT DIAGNOSIS USUALLY YOU WILL GET PRECANCEROUS CHANGE TO THE TISSUE WITH THAT, THERE IS A RISK OF DEVELOPING ESOPHAGEAL CANCER
