Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease: Diagnosis and Management

An old review article. Not much has changed in treatment methods since that time. You can see how slow modern medicine progresses.

In gerdo's story,
A Story of Recovering from GERD. gerdo spoke of the prescription of Motilium. It was quite unconventional, because prokinetic drugs has bad side effects. I wonder how she can put up with the terrible side effects from the heavy dosage of prokinetic drugs. The pylorus dilation procedure is unheard of in the treatment of GERD. So it's best if the doctor can publish and demonstrate his method to the world.

A more updated article about treatment of GERD, purely from medical practitioner perspective.
Heartburn and Regurgitation

Great thing about this article is that it recognizes the danger of PPI withdrawal rebound, and suggests a tapering-off method.
