Abstract

Heartburn and other symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease can be a lifelong problem, affecting millions of Americans each year. Fortunately, treatment has improved dramatically over the past decade. Medications currently available are remarkably safe and, with proper selection, almost universally effective. When indicated, surgical treatment is also highly effective.
