Acid reflux and GERD treatment

Heartburn is a symptom of acid reflux. Left untreated, chronic acid reflux can become GERD, which may lead to more serious conditions, including ulcers and esophageal cancer. We recognize GERD as an anatomical problem that needs an anatomical solution, so we offer a variety of surgical treatments for GERD that can help improve your quality of life. In the last several decades, our GI specialists have performed more anti-reflux treatments than any other provider in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

GI surgery

Our GI surgeons have access to the latest technology and minimally invasive procedures, which are offered through our Institute for Robotics and Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery. Because GI conditions can affect many parts of the body, we collaborate with other specialists, including colorectal and gynecologic surgeons, when needed.

GI cancer treatment

Whether you have colorectal cancer symptoms or have received a cancer diagnosis, our oncologists provide full-service GI cancer care, from screenings and diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.
