CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Heartburn Center provides education and serves as a resource for chronic heartburn suffers and their physicians. The center offers a variety of treatment programs that include dietary management, medication and, when indicated, surgery.
Many people who suffer from heartburn and GERD never think their condition warrants care from a physician. The goal of the CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital Heartburn Center is to raise community awareness about the signs and symptoms of heartburn and GERD. Heightened awareness will benefit everyone participating-primary care physicians (PCP), specialists, the hospital, and most importantly, the patients, who will get the level of care they need. Call 430-GERD (4373) to speak with our heartburn nurse today.
