GERD/Acid Reflux Surgery

Also known as acid reflux, gastroesophageal reflux disease (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. Grieve and Dr. Neiger perform the Nissen Fundoplication procedure for acid reflux patients, as well as hiatal hernia repair for GERD.
