Prevea Health

Prevea heartburn treatment center


The Prevea Heartburn Treatment Center, the only one of its kind in Wisconsin, provides patients with specialized care.

Heartburn is a symptom of GERD and treatment is essential, not only for patient comfort and quality of life, but also for future health concerns.

Nearly everyone has suffered from occasional heartburn after a spicy meal or during times of stress. If you suffer from painful burning, regurgitation and the discomfort of heartburn, on a weekly or daily basis, you may be suffering from Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

My heartburn keeps me from eating the foods I really love.

Do you avoid the foods you used to love? Do you find mealtime to be a constant compromise? It’s time to take control of your eating and your life.

Will I be taking heartburn medication the rest of my life?

Do you find yourself reaching for antacids several times a week? If medications you take to relieve your heartburn are losing their effectiveness, or if you have been experiencing symptoms for several years, staff at the Prevea Heartburn Treatment Center is here to help.

Day or night, my heartburn makes me miserable.

Do you sleep in a recliner because you cannot lie flat? Does regurgitation frequently wake you up at night? Severe and painful symptoms of GERD can occur day or night making life miserable.
At the Prevea Heartburn Treatment Center, a specially trained patient coordinator, physicians and dedicated nurses, will thoroughly discuss your symptoms with you, including some you may not know are associate with GERD. You will receive information about lifestyle and treatment options based on the latest research.

Heartburn Medication

Some people choose to self-medicate with over-the-counter antacids and acid reducing medication; others see a physician who may treat the patient with prescription medications for GERD. Did you know since other conditions mimic GERD symptoms, it can be challenging to correctly diagnose GERD? Some of these patients may not actually have the disease. In addition, some patients do not receive relief from medications or experience side effects. The Prevea Heartburn Treatment Center properly addresses these patients’ specialized needs.
