Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Recognizes GERD Awareness Week

Nov 26, 2018

Hilton Head Island, S.C. – Hilton Head Regional Healthcare recognizes the 19th annual GERD Awareness Week from November 18th through November 24th.

From the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a fairly common disorder. Each year around the week of Thanksgiving, the IFFGD encourages people experiencing the symptom, which may be GERD-related, to consult their physicians.

“It’s important to keep health in mind all year-long – but especially during the holiday season,” said Joel Taylor, Coastal Carolina Hospital CEO. “When it comes to GERD, the symptoms could make it hard to enjoy some holiday favorites. Fortunately, Hilton Head Regional Healthcare offers a treatment option for local residents.”

TIF stands for Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication. It is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to reinforce the natural anti-reflux barrier between the esophagus and stomach.

To interview about TIF at Hilton Head Regional Healthcare, please contact PR Manager Daisy Burroughs at 803-833-0104, email daisy.burroughs@tenethealth.com.
