Acid Reflux

Most babies spit up from time-to-time, throughout the course of a day. When this regurgitation causes other issues or is associated with additional symptoms, it may be due to acid reflux, otherwise known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which can also occur in older children, teens and adults.

At Tufts Children's Hospital in downtown Boston, we have a team of specialists with strong expertise in treating acid reflux in kids. Learn more by using the links below.
