Gastrointestinal conditions we treat

The doctors in our Heartburn & Reflux Center treat gastrointestinal conditions on an inpatient basis. However, for individuals in need of immediate relief for heartburn and reflux treatment, acute or chronic stomach pain, or other digestive issues, patients may seek care in our emergency room (ER).

Our gastrointestinal (GI) doctors in Las Vegas treat an array of health conditions affecting the digestive tract, including:

  • Appendicitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Gallstones
  • GERD
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Stomach hernia

Heartburn and acid reflux treatment

Heartburn is indicated by a burning sensation in your chest and is a symptom of acid reflux. Some people have GERD, a severe and ongoing case of heartburn and acid reflux.

Long-term heartburn, acid reflux and GERD may lead to more serious health problems, which is why it is important to seek treatment from a GERD specialist for your symptoms as early as possible.

Symptoms of acid reflux that may accompany heartburn include:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Chronic cough
  • Stomach pain or burning in the upper abdomen
  • Persistent sore throat
  • Regurgitation of foods or liquids with a taste of acid in the throat
  • Persistent hoarseness or laryngitis

If you are experiencing symptoms of chronic heartburn or conditions such as acid reflux or GERD, The Heartburn & Reflux Center is here to help.

Based on the severity of a patient’s symptoms, our gastroenterology specialists provide individualized care and treatment services. Depending on your diagnosis, treatment options may range from diet and lifestyle modifications to surgical treatment.

Minimally invasive and endoscopic surgery options

Depending on a patient’s symptoms and diagnosis, gastroenterology treatment options range from medication therapy to surgical services.

If surgery is required, our GI doctors use advanced techniques, including minimally invasive options such as endoscopic surgery. Endoscopic surgery is performed using a scope that is inserted through small incisions.

We frequently perform the following surgical procedures:

  • Appendectomy (appendix removal)
  • Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal)
  • Esophagectomy (esophageal cancer removal)
  • Hernia repair
  • Stomach surgery
