Surgery for Acidity

If you suffer from chronic acid reflux or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and medications don’t work, surgery for acidity may be the best option for you. Surgery can effectively relieve symptoms of reflux, such as heartburn, regurgitation, and difficulty swallowing, by correcting the underlying anatomical problem.

At our clinic, we provide comprehensive and personalized care for patients with acid reflux disease. Our experienced surgeons are well-equipped to perform a variety of anti-reflux surgeries, including fundoplication, hiatal hernia repair, and LINX® reflux management system.

Fundoplication is a minimally invasive procedure that involves wrapping the upper part of the stomach (the fundus) around the lower esophagus to strengthen the valve between the esophagus and stomach. This helps prevent stomach acid from flowing back into the esophagus. The procedure is typically done using laparoscopic surgery, which involves making small incisions in the abdomen and using specialized tools to perform the surgery.

Hiatal hernia repair is a surgical procedure to repair a hiatal hernia, which occurs when the upper part of the stomach bulges through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. This can cause reflux symptoms because the hernia can disrupt the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the muscle that controls the opening and closing of the esophagus. Hiatal hernia repair can be performed using open or laparoscopic surgery, depending on the size and severity of the hernia.

LINX® reflux management system is a relatively new option for anti-reflux surgery. It involves implanting a small, flexible ring of magnets around the base of the esophagus. The magnets help strengthen the LES and prevent reflux, but can still open to allow food and liquid to pass through. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically done on an outpatient basis.

Our team will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your condition, based on your individual needs and preferences. We strive to provide the highest quality care in a comfortable and supportive environment.
