When Is Surgery Necessary for Infant GERD?

Surgery as an Infant GERD Treatment

In rare cases, infants have severe GERD that can cause breathing problems or prevent them from growing. For some of these infants, GERD surgery may be the best option.
 

A Summary of Infant GERD Treatment

There are several options for infant GERD treatment, including feeding and sleeping modifications, medications, or surgery. The treatment recommended will depend on the infant's age and severity of symptoms. In most cases, medications or surgery are not needed, as many infants outgrow reflux by 1 or 2 years of age.
