What is Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder that affects the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD. In most cases, GERD can be relieved through diet and lifestyle changes. However, some people may require medication or surgery.

Treatments for GERD

When someone does not respond well to lifestyle changes or medications to control their gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), surgery may be an option.

Our general surgeons perform the following procedures:

Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication – a minimally invasive procedure that restores the function of the valve between the esophagus and stomach, helping prevent acid reflux.

Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) – a minimally invasive, incisionless procedure that rebuilds the anti-reflux valve and restores the body's natural protection against acid reflux.
