We would like to acknowledge from the outset a much larger interdisciplinary team that collaborated together for more than 5 years to research a variety of topics that are summarized in this article. The core group of colleagues represents the disciplines of Otolaryngology (Dr. Tom Abelson), Speech-Language Pathology (current authors), Gastroenterology (Drs. Mike Vaezi and Joel Richter), and General Surgery (Dr. Jeff Ponsky). Given the complex nature of this topic, no one discipline is capable of adequately investigating the myriad of issues related to understanding the true nature of LPR and its effective evaluation and treatment. As is true for other collaborative efforts, the best that occurs is the clash of ideas stemming from different perspectives but resolved in collegial compromise. This was true of our experience at the Cleveland Clinic.
