Medical Experts to Discuss Treatment Options

Trying to beat reoccurring heartburn pain and discomfort? People affected by heartburn symptoms can learn about surgical treatment options, including incisionless surgery – a procedure that corrects acid indigestion with little to no postoperative pain and a quick recovery.

People can attend the free community presentation, “Beat the Burn:  Incisionless Reflux Surgery,” led by Nikhilesh Sekhar, MD, FACS, and Kevin Wasco, MD, FACS, both of Surgical Associates of Neenah, S.C., to get the scoop on heartburn and treatment solutions.
