"Cool the Burn: Understanding Reflux Causes, Symptoms & Treatment Options" Topic of Upcoming Lunch and Learn For Your Health Lecture

Vincent K. Arlauskas, M.D., Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Glynn General & Vascular SurgeryAugust 14, 2019 – Are you or a loved one experiencing upper abdominal discomfort, such as a burning sensation, bloating or nausea? Did you know that indigestion is often a sign of an underlying problem rather than a condition of its own? If you have frequent heartburn and indigestion, you may have gastro-esophageal reflux disease or GERD, a condition where acid from your stomach flows back into your esophagus causing discomfort and pain. GERD can be a frustrating condition that can affect your quality of life, but there are treatments and surgical options available.

On Wednesday, Aug. 28, 12:30-1:30 p.m., Vincent K. Arlauskas, M.D., general surgeon with Southeast Georgia Physician Associates-Glynn General & Vascular Surgery, will be the guest speaker for the monthly Golden Isles YMCA Lunch and Learn. His presentation, “Cool the Burn: Understanding Reflux Causes, Symptoms & Treatment Options,” will include important information on GERD risk factors, differentiating symptoms, and medical and surgical treatment options, including da Vinci ® Robotic Surgery.

The Golden Isles YMCA is located at 144 Scranton Connector, Brunswick. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required by calling the YMCA at 912-265-4100. A YMCA membership is not required to attend; the Lunch and Learn is open to the public, and lunch will be provided by Shane’s Rib Shack at no charge to attendees.
