Reflux Surgery Keeps Acid in Your Stomach Where It Belongs

Explore Reflux Surgery

Lifestyle changes and medications not helping? If you’re still feeling the pain and irritation that comes with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), ask your doctor about reflux surgery. It’s a common option for patients who aren’t getting relief from chronic heartburn caused by stomach acid bubbling up into the esophagus.

While medical therapy may neutralize or suppress the acid, not everyone wants to spend a lifetime trying to treat their symptoms with pills. And there are the side effects of taking those pills, such as nausea and diarrhea as well as an increased risk for infections and bone fractures in the long term.

Surgery Strengthens the Stomach Valve to Prevent Reflux

Our surgeons specialize in reflux surgery, including minimally invasive techniques that result in excellent outcomes. Reflux surgery strengthens or restructures the weak LES valve (the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach). The one-way valve is then able to work as it should, letting nourishment into the stomach and preventing backwards flow into the throat.
