There are exciting changes coming for 2018. If you are a patient of mine you will be receiving a letter from Baylor Scott & White noting that I will be leaving in March of this year. This is indeed the case, and I will be transitioning my practice to The University of Texas- Dell Medical School on the main campus of UT in Austin! https://dellmed.utexas.edu . Dell Med has the dual mission of innovation and clinical excellence and I am excited to lead its new program in GERD and other esophageal diseases. If you are a patient you will also be receiving a letter from UT-Dell Med, Seton, as well as from me personally if you are enrolled in one of our research programs. Our new phone number is 512 324-GERD(4373). Additionally, if you contact the old office at BSW, they will be happy to give you my new contact information as well. This will be an exciting new chapter as we take the treatment, research surrounding esophageal diseases to new levels with the power of one of our countries most respected research universities- UT-Dell Med!

Dell Medical School | The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is the first med school in decades to be built from the ground up at a Tier 1 research university.

6:17 |Reduce Adverse Effects of Proton Pump Inhibitors (Long-term Use) | "Proton pump inhibitors effectively treat gastroesophageal reflux disease, erosive esophagitis, duodenal ulcers, and pathologic hypersecretory conditions. Proton pump inhibitors cause few adverse effects with short-term use; however, long-term use has been scrutinized for appropriateness, drug-drug interactions, and the potential for adverse effects (e.g., hip fractures, cardiac events, iron deficiency, Clostridium difficile infection, pneumonia)."

4:17 | Eat A GERD Friendly Diet |Coming up with the appropriate diet and lifestyle changes involves discovering what works best for you. Not all triggers and treatments will affect all people in the same way. However, avoiding/limiting high fat foods, caffeine, chocolate, onions, peppermint, carbonated beverages, alcohol, citrus and tomato products is a good place to start!

01/09/2017

3:17 | Slim Down The Waistline | Did you know that extra weight can increase the pressure in your stomach, potentially worsening your GERD? The increase in pressure opens the Lower Esophageal Sphincter allowing reflux to enter the esophagus! Maintaining a healthy BMI (18-25) has multiple other health benefits as well including improving cardiovascular health, strengthening bones, and improving mood among others!

2:17 | Spread Awareness About The Surgical Treatment of GERD | Did you now up to 40% of patients continue to have symptoms while on medication? Surgical intervention addresses the cause of GERD and TREATS the disease. Surgery strengthens the barrier between the stomach and esophagus, reducing the body's ability to reflux.

1:17 | Spread GERD Awareness | Sixty percent of the adult population will experience some type of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) within a 12 month period and 20 to 30 percent will have weekly symptoms. Approximately seven million people in the United States have some symptoms of GERD.

This is the Real Cause of Acid Reflux Disease, Study Says

New article in US News about and new theories about what causes damage to the esophagus! Remember, an incompetent lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is what allows reflux (stomach acid v. Cytokines) to enter the esophagus! Treating GERD at the source means addressing the cause and reinforcing the LES! Medical management with PPIs treats the symptoms, not the D for disease in GERD!

Popular Heartburn Pills Can Be Hard To Stop, And May Be Risky 05/05/2016

Popular Heartburn Pills Can Be Hard To Stop, And May Be Risky

Dr. DeVault (a gastroenterologist quoted in this article) is correct that PPIs are the best DRUG created to control heartburn symptoms. HOWEVER, what he does not say (but is well documented) is that surgery is superior to medication in controlling symptoms, that medications do not stop progression of disease, and that 30-40% of patients have incomplete control of symptoms on medications. All of this is from the GI literature.

Popular Heartburn Pills Can Be Hard To Stop, And May Be Risky Millions of people take proton pump inhibitors. But the drugs can increase patients' risk of infections, bone fractures and kidney problems. And trying to stop the drugs can make symptoms much worse.
