Overview

The esophagus is a vital part of your digestive health because it has the important job of carrying food and liquids from your mouth to your stomach.

A common disorder of the esophagus is acid reflux, which may further develop into gastroesophageal reflux disease, also known as GERD. A common symptom of these conditions is heartburn, an uncomfortable burning sensation in your chest. All of these conditions make it more difficult for our bodies to receive the nutrients they need.

In cases where a healthy lifestyle isn’t enough to maintain a properly functioning esophagus, Mercy Health offers complete care for esophageal disorders and their symptoms. Esophageal disorders are often treated by a specialist in gastroenterology because they impact the digestive system.
