Arshad Bachelani, M.D., will host a free talk about Gastrointestinal Reflux Disease (GERD) on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 6 p.m. in the Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center at Monongahela Valley Hospital.

Dr. Bachelani will discuss GERD, a digestive disorder in which the contents of the stomach flow back into the esophagus, leading to heartburn, difficulty swallowing, regurgitation of food and cough, to name a few. Long term GERD can lead to complications in the esophagus that can make swallowing difficult, cause an ulcer or the cause development of precancerous cells. Dr. Bachelani will talk about treatment options available that include medications as well as surgery. To register, visit the program registration page or call 724-258-1333.

The talk is part of Monongahela Valley Hospital's Innovations in Medicine series that features physician guest speakers providing medical information to the community.
