Heartburn - A Very Real Problem - Dr. Butch Rosser

A little heartburn can mean a big problem. Everyone experiences a little heartburn or indigestion sometimes. But for a surprising number of people, this problem is much more than an occasional nuisance. It is painful, affects sleep and the ability to enjoy food, and diminishes your quality of life.

Though many people suffer from chronic acid reflux, which causes heartburn, few people are aware of the more severe health risks that can occur if left untreated, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which can lead to esophageal cancer.

Grant Regional Health Center, with the expertise of Dr. Butch Rosser, recognizes this growing health problem and knows the importance of offering a comprehensive program for this region. Dr. Rosser is dedicated to providing the most advanced, personalized care to prevent, diagnose and treat conditions that cause heartburn.

"While my clinical expertise is centered on utilizing minimally invasive techniques, my true passion is helping patients who suffer from chronic heartburn and GERD," explains Dr. Rosser. "With our advanced testing and treatment options, we can help you win the war on heartburn! Its personal for me, my uncle died of esophageal cancer. Esophageal Cancer is on the rise - up 600 percent since 1975 and is the fastest growing cancer in America."
