Syracuse, N.Y.-based St. Joseph's Health has opened The Heartburn Center at St. Joseph's, the region's first dedicated and comprehensive heartburn treatment center.

The Heartburn Center is in the specialty services department in St. Joseph's main hospital campus.

The center provides care for anyone who suffers from any degree of heartburn, from occasional minor discomfort to those who require surgery. It is staffed with a team of physician experts, including a gastroenterologist, robotics surgeon, bariatric surgeon, pulmonologist, dieticians and psychology care providers.

The Heartburn Center at St. Joseph's Health offers some of the latest technology for heartburn treatment. It is the only facility in Central New York to offer the LINX implant procedure to treat heartburn. The LINX implant is placed at the bottom of the esophagus to help strengthen the valve between the esophagus and stomach, and stop acid from backing up into the esophagus as easily.
