Heartburn Relief Is Just A Click Away
We are the Dallas/Fort Worth Gastro-Intestinal Experts who can Help!
Heartburn occurs when the acid from the stomach works its way back into the esophagus, causing a burning or discomfort. The acid backs up into the esophagus when the lower esophageal sphincter muscle weakens or relaxes abnormally. Heartburn, also known as acid indigestion is a burning sensation in the chest, just behind the breastbone or in the upper abdomen. The pain often rises in the chest and may seem like it has spread to the neck, throat, or jaw.
Don't Let Chronic Heartburn Go Untreated
Otherwise you can be left to deal with even more severe health issues
If you brush off the symptoms of heartburn, this common condition — as well as its more serious form, GERD — can cause other health issues to flare-up. Over time, as your stomach juices wash back up, the stomach acid can cause severe damage your esophagus, teeth, and more.
Therefore, if you experience heartburn or acid reflux more than twice a week, you may have chronic acid reflux or GERD.
Millions of Americans suffer from heartburn on a daily basis. There's a variety of causes of heartburn, but there's also a variety of treatments, ranging from medical to surgical to some things in between. If you are suffering, don't delay. See your doctor or see us, at Ultimate Bariatrics!

What our clients have to say
Our customer satisfaction speaks for itself
With the help of Dr. Smith I have been able to restore my health and extend my lifespan. I no longer need to take 8 prescriptions a day and have the energy of a teenager again. The LAP-BAND® has helped give me my life back!
...the staff at Ft. Worth LAP-BAND® essentially saved my life! I weighed 326 lbs. and was slowly but surely asphyxiating myself with my weight. I had to use a sleep apnea machine every night just to get enough oxygen when I slept. Because I was not able to get sufficient oxygen, I stayed swollen constantly; I had red splotches all over my skin. I also had constant back pain, and really just did not want to DO anything.... I have since lost 106 pounds and am still losing weight! I am so very grateful to the FWLB staff for everything they have done for me.
After having LAP-BAND® surgery, I gained the courage and confidence to branch out into wound care. I’ve proven myself, and the company I work for has now agreed to pay for my wound care certification. I couldn’t be happier.
I am so happy I decided to have the gastric sleeve! Post-op I have realized there is more to life than sitting at home in front of the TV with my bag of Cool Ranch Doritos and HUGE Dr. Pepper. It has improved my ability to do my job tremendously. I no longer feel restricted in my body; I can do push-ups and lift weights, and I try harder to learn how to do things myself instead of asking for help. I now enjoy going out and doing activities with my family and friends! Being able to be active is awesome!

Diagnosis & Treatment
A candidate for TIF procedure will have tried 6 months of PPI (proton pump inhibitor) medication. An EGD will be done to determine if the patient has acute esophagitis, and measurements will be taken to ensure TIF is the correct procedure.
TIF is considered the newest technology in treating Heartburn. (Acid Reflux, and GERD).
TIF (Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication) is an incisionless treatment of the underlying cause of GERD. This procedure reconstructs the antireflux valve and restores the body’s natural protection against reflux.
