In brief: Sometimes

Acid reflux can be treated medically such as with Omeprazole or with surgery.
It is possible to 'cure' the acid reflux if the surgery is successful.

In brief: Potentially

Gastroesophageal reflux disease gerd is best first diagnosed with physician consult.
Often, first line treatment is geared towards lifestyle modification and treatment symptoms. Very few cases are actually "cured" with dietary changes and or lifestyle modifications. Medications do not "cure" they remove acid from the refluxing material. So, more definitive cure is by surgery.
