Acid Reflux / TIF

Surgery for Heartburn/Acid Reflux/TIF

Resolving your problem at its source.

If you have severe, frequent and persistent heartburn, you may actually have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). And if medications and lifestyle changes fail to control or reduce your symptoms, you may be a candidate for surgery to correct your reflux problem. Dr. Clifford Black, Dr. Lei Liu and Dr. Peter Jernigan perform anti-reflux/GERD surgery to strengthen the natural valve that keeps stomach acid where it belongs — in your stomach, not your throat. When this valve isn’t functioning properly, that’s what causes acid to “back up” and create the painful burning sensations of heartburn.

The advanced skill to give you lasting relief.

Dr. Black has helped many patients with GERD by surgically correcting their problem. In fact, anti-reflux surgery is one of the most common procedures performed by Anniston General Surgery Center, and one for which physicians and patients alike have recommended others for effective, lasting relief of heartburn. Also, our years of experience ensure that you get the highly skilled, top-quality care you need to get past your symptoms and start living your life again.
