I am going to list the Paparella ENT Clinic at the University of MN, Fairview Riverside Clinic.
Paparella Ear Head & Neck Institute, founded by Dr. Michael Paparella over twenty years ago, has earned a reputation as one of the most innovative and compassionate ENT practices in the Twin Cities and Upper Midwest. Our board certified and fellowship-trained physicians, and our entire clinical staff, pride themselves on offering the most comprehensive care in a thoughtful and caring manner.
A gastroenterologist, a specialist in treating gastrointestinal orders, will often provide initial treatment for GERD. But there are ear, nose, and throat problems that are either caused by or associated with GERD, such as hoarseness, laryngeal (singers) nodules, croup, airway stenosis (narrowing), swallowing difficulties, throat pain, and sinus infections. These problems require an otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon, or a specialist who has extensive experience with the tools that diagnose GERD and LPR. They treat many of the complications of GERD, including: sinus and ear infections, throat and laryngeal inflammation and lesions, as well as a change in the esophageal lining called Barrett's esophagus, which is a serious complication that can lead to cancer. Your primary care physician or pediatrician will often refer a case of LPR to an otolaryngologist-head and neck surgeon for evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment.
