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

Request an appointment: Request an appointment by calling one of our general surgeon's offices or online in your patient portal.
