Abstract

[Gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD) is the most prevalent gastrointestinal disorder in the United States with considerable morbidity. It is typically characterized by the classic symptoms of heartburn and regurgitation. The management of GERD includes assessment for alarm features which should prompt further investigation. However, in most cases GERD is a presumptive diagnosis that can be treated empirically with proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy without extensive diagnostic evaluation. This chapter will review the non-operative management of GERD, including medical therapy as well as the additional diagnostic for patients at risk for complications of GERD.]
