GERD/Acid Reflux Surgery

At Glacial Ridge Health System, Dr. Elizabeth Colsen specializes in gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) surgery. Also known as acid reflux, GERD surgery is a permanent solution for patients suffering from chronic acid reflux. Surgeries are usually performed laparoscopically, which means small incisions, so a patient will have less scarring and a faster recovery.

What is GERD/Acid Reflux Surgery?

The goal of GERD surgery for moderate to severe heartburn is to recreate the one-way valve effect so that acid no longer gets into the esophagus. These operations are performed in one of our state-of-the-art operating rooms and are usually laparoscopic. Dr. Colsen performs Nissen Fundoplication and the LINX® procedure for acid reflux patients, as well as hiatal hernia repair for GERD.
