The seminar will be held in San Ramon Regional Medical Center’s South Building in the South Conference Room, 7777 Norris Canyon Road, San Ramon.
Mrudula Kumar, M.D., gastroenterologist, and Wilson Tsai, M.D., thoracic surgeon, will discuss the risks, signs and symptoms of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), and advanced medical and minimally invasive surgical treatments.
Heartburn is a symptom of GERD caused by gastric acid flowing from the stomach into the esophagus. The condition can interrupt sleep and restrict diet. Left untreated, GERD can damage the esophagus, and may increase the risk for esophageal cancer. Learn about the importance of diagnosis and treatment of this uncomfortable condition.
