GERD care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

Mayo Clinic's GERD care team includes doctors trained in digestive diseases (gastroenterologists) and chest (thoracic) surgeons who work together to provide exactly the care you need.

Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — care is discussed among the team, appointments are scheduled in coordination and highly specialized GERD experts are all working together to determine what's best for you.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Virtually every test and treatment for GERD is available in one convenient location. Mayo Clinic specialists have experience using intraluminal esophageal impedance monitoring to detect and measure reflux regardless of acid content. This test can help determine the cause of your symptoms if proton pump inhibitors don't provide relief.

If surgery is needed, Mayo Clinic thoracic surgeons have experience with minimally invasive anti-reflux surgery. These procedures require significant experience and skills in laparoscopy.
