About This Program

The Heartburn and Esophageal Disorders clinical practice is comprised of a specialized care team within Digestive Health, a clinical partnership between Ascension Seton and UT Health Austin.

The Heartburn and Esophageal Disorders care team diagnoses, treats, and manages disorders of the foregut (specifically the esophagus and stomach), including achalasia, Barrett’s Esophagus, complex hiatal hernias, GERD, and other esophageal disorders, in adult patients (18 years and older). We want to improve your overall health and quality of life by diagnosing and treating the cause of your gastroesophageal reflux (acid reflux).

Located in the clinical spaces at UT Health Austin with access to full-scale hospital resources, the Heartburn and Esophageal Disorders clinical practice provides the most advanced treatments available for patients in Central Texas and beyond with a focus on patient-centered outcomes, cutting-edge research and clinical trials, and medical education.

Treatment Approach

Patients are cared for by a dedicated multidisciplinary care team, meaning you will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained surgical and non-surgical heartburn and esophageal specialists have extensive experience treating disorders of the foregut and work alongside a team of digestive health experts, including gastroenterologists, physician assistants, nurses, advanced practice providers, dietitians, social workers, and more, providing unparalleled care for patients every step of the way.

As faculty physicians of the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, we are able to leverage collaboration throughout The University of Texas system. We collaborate with our colleagues to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to offer treatment plans specific to your needs.
