We are aware that the only way to successfully cure gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and provide patients with long-term symptom relief is to address the underlying cause of the condition. Through a detailed workup, Dr. Grandhige assesses every part of your anatomy to understand what is the root cause in your particular case. The root causes can include a weak lower esophageal sphincter, hiatal hernia, weak esophagus or slow stomach (gastroparesis). Based on his assessment, Dr. Grandhige is able to address your specific underlying cause through various medication and anti-reflux surgical options.
Dr. Grandhige is happy to be recognized among the top reflux surgeons in Florida and one of the busiest Linx surgeons in the entire country. He participates nationally in research studies and committees to further the treatment of GERD patients. He evaluates and treats over 600 reflux patients a year. Minimally invasive surgical procedures have been perfected over the course of several decades, and he has spent that time honing them. We have made it our aim to inform patients about the factors that can lead to GERD as well as the risks associated with the usage of drugs such as PPIs for the purpose of treatment. As a consequence of this, when our patients leave their first consultation with us, they do so with the understanding that they have been educated about their condition, that they are empowered to make the best treatment decision for their unique requirements, and that they are inspired to reclaim their lives from the effects of their GERD symptoms.
