Heartburn keeping you up at night?

Schneck Surgical Associates offers permanent solutions to gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, more commonly known as heartburn. Millions of dollars are spent trying to control symptoms with over-the-counter antacids and prescription medications to control the pain and side effects of GERD. Our surgeons at Schneck may have a better solution for you.

Symptoms of GERD vary between individuals, but the most common symptoms are heartburn and chest pain. Other symptoms include cough, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, sore throat, bad breath and dental issues, and adult-onset asthma

Talk to your primary care provider about your symptoms and possible solutions to treat GERD, including a referral to Schneck Surgical Associates for advanced treatment.


Acid reflux is caused by a weak lower esophageal sphincter, a valve-like muscle that regulates the passage of food and liquid from the esophagus into the stomach. Another cause of GERD is the presence of a hiatal hernia.

Medications help neutralize the acid, lessening the pain, but reflux and damage to the esophagus continues. Many times patients turn to surgical options to treat GERD.

When patients understand GERD and the damage it causes or do not want to take medications long term, some look for surgical options. Schneck offers these surgical procedures:

  • Linx Procedure
  • TIF Procedure
  • Nissen Fundoplication
  • Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
