FIGHTING A MODERN DAY EPIDEMIC

There is a direct relationship between the development of diabetes and obesity as 90% of patients with diabetes have at least Class I obesity which is classified as greater than 50 pounds overweight. There is also strong evidence that shows heartburn or GERD can lead to more serious complications such as Barrett’s Esophagus and even Cancer. Dr. Chiasson has championed cutting edge minimally invasive surgical procedures throughout his career to give people a fighting chance at saving their lives. It’s important to note that an alarming number of people suffering from digestive disorders and diseases.

Right now, anywhere between 15% & 30% of the U.S. population has GERD,
according to a review from 2014
The prevalence of obesity in the U.S. was 39% 95 This equates to almost from 2015 -2016 and has
continued to climb
million people
Esophageal Cancer (adenocarcinoma)
has increased
600% in the past 3 decades;
making it the fastest growing cancer in the
United States and other western countries
The CDC estimates more than 30% of
American adults will have type 2 Diabetes
by 2030. As a result, for the first time in 100 years
the average lifespan of the American
population is decreeasing.

Barrett's Esophagus Click to learn more BARRETT'S ESOPHAGUS
Barrett’s esophagus is a condition affecting the lining of the esophagus the swallowing tube that carries foods and liquids from the mouth to the stomach. Barrett’s esophagus is caused by injury to the esophagus from the chronic backwash of stomach contents (like acid and enzymes) that occurs with acid reflux. There are no symptoms specific to Barrett’s esophagus, other than the typical symptoms of acid reflux (or GERD).

Achalasia Achalasia Click to learn more ACHALASIA
Achalasia occurs when the food tube (esophagus) loses the ability to squeeze food down, and the muscular valve between the esophagus and stomach doesn’t fully relax. The reason for these problems is damage to the nerves in the esophagus. There is no cure, but Achalasia symptoms can usually be managed with minimally invasive (endoscopic) therapy or surgery.
Esophageal Cancer ESOPHAGEAL CANCER
Esophageal cancer is a serious form of cancer that develops in the esophagus, the long tube that connects the back of your mouth with your stomach. The most common types of esophageal cancer are adenocarcinoma, which starts in the glandular cells producing fluids such as mucus, and squamous cell carcinoma, which starts in flat cells of the esophageal lining.

Stomach Cancer Click to learn more STOMACH CANCER
The stomach is an organ between the esophagus and small intestine. It is where digestion of protein begins. The stomach has three tasks. It stores swallowed food. It mixes the food with stomach acids. Then it sends the mixture on to the small intestine. Stomach cancer can begin in cells in the inner layer of the stomach (Adenocarcinoma), or from the middle layer of the stomach wall (GIST tumor), or from the lymph supply of the stomach (Lymphoma).
Hiatal Hernia HIATAL HERNIA
Any time an internal body part pushes into an area where it doesn’t belong, it’s called a hernia. The hiatus is an opening in the diaphragm – the muscular wall separating the chest cavity from the abdomen. Normally, the esophagus goes through the hiatus and attaches to the stomach. In a hiatal hernia, the stomach bulges up into the chest through that opening.

Obesity / Diabetes DIABETES / OBESITY
Today, 8% of all adults suffer from Adult Onset Diabetes or Type II Diabetes. It is projected that by the year 2030, more than 25% of all adults will have diabetes. There is a direct relationship between the development of diabetes and obesity as 90% of patients with diabetes have at least Class I obesity (>50 lbs overweight). To date, the only truly successful strategy to address this problem for individuals is Bariatric Surgery.

GERD / LPR Click to learn more GERD & LPR
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disease that occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, bile flows back (refluxes) into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash of acid irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD signs and symptoms that are generally referred to as heartburn or reflux. In addition to heartburn symptoms, severe GERD can also cause problems with worsening asthma, recurrent pneumonia, or chronic laryngitis.
