Advanced Procedures for Heartburn
With millions of Americans suffering from chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (more commonly known as heartburn), Northeast Methodist Hospital offers the most advanced procedures to diagnose the disorder. The bravo test is a non-invasive procedure consisting of a small capsule that is temporarily attached to the esophagus. The results from this quick and easy diagnostic test reveal what’s causing the reflux and treatment options based on severity.
