Course Description
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is one of the most frequent reasons for GI consultation and is often one of the more challenging diseases encountered by gastroenterologists. In this seminar, motility experts will present a comprehensive overview of the spectrum of GERD. Presentations will provide the most up-to-date evidence on diagnosis and management as well as how to optimize treatments and manage functional syndromes.

Learning Objectives
  • Review the varying presentations, management options, and complications of GERD
  • Describe the utilization of testing, basic test interpretation, and complications of diagnostic testing
  • Recognize situations where endoscopic intervention is indicated for management
  • Recognize conditions mimicking GERD, including functional syndromes such as functional heartburn, reflux hypersensitivity, rumination, and supragastric belching
