Monday, February 27th, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!

Heartburn.  GERD.  Call it what you will, its not fun to have.  Although medications are great at treating this condition, there is some worry about using them long term and many people would prefer not to take anything at all.  Surgery has been around for over 40 years, and minimally invasive surgery has been performed since the 1990's.  But does it work?  Join us as we speak to Dr. Francisco Schlottman of the UNC Medical Center For Esophageal Disease and Swallowing as we talk about his new research showing that laparoscopic results are just as good as open surgery (and cheaper, too!)

GERD?  Thinking Surgery?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

After this we have a very open office.  We will taking your phone calls, tweets,  and emails as we have "Ask Doctor Ira/ GI Update: Expanded Edition."  Anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!
