GERD/Acid Reflux Surgery

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.

At Glacial Ridge Center for Surgical Care, we always want our patients to get the best care – and that also means the safest care. Additional infection control protocols are in place to keep our surgical patients safe from COVID-19. See what we’re doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
