The goals of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) treatment are:
- To bring the symptoms under control so that the individual feels better;
- heal the esophagus of inflammation or injury;
- manage or prevent complications such as Barrett's esophagus or stricture;
- and maintain the symptoms of GERD in remission so that daily life is unaffected or minimally affected by reflux.
