Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease – our treatment

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease is a chronic condition that is usually caused by poor diet or stress. If left untreated, the consequences of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, such as chronic inflammation, narrowing (stenosis), bleeding or degeneration of the mucous membrane or even oesophageal cancer, can significantly reduce your quality of life. Our experts in Hamburg specialize in the treatment treatment of chronic heartburn, as gastro-oesophageal reflux disease is also called. Depending on your individual complaints, you can use various therapeutic approaches to help you. These range from acid-inhibiting medication, through changing your diet, to surgery. In the case of sporadic heartburn, well-known home remedies such as stomach-friendly teas can already provide you with relief.
For the diagnosis of oesophageal diseases, we perform reflections of the oesophagus and stomach, pressure measurements (manometry) and acid measurements (pH-metry). If conservative treatments do not permanently or sufficiently alleviate your symptoms, usually minimally invasive surgery can be a sensible treatment for your gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. You can trust the surgical and gastroenterological expertise of our specialists in Hamburg.
