Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder that causes gastric acid to flow from the stomach into the esophagus. If GERD is left untreated, the digestive disorder may develop into Barrett’s Esophagus, a condition in which the inner lining of the esophagus will resemble the stomach lining. Furthermore, long-term GERD can cause cancer to develop in the esophagus due to gastric acid wearing down the esophagus, the tube that is not structured to handle such contents. Anti-Reflux (GERD) Surgery is a surgery for GERD that repairs the muscle that prevents gastric acid from entering the esophagus. Surgical treatment for GERD is a reliable solution to get long-term relief. Surgeons at Florida Hospital have performed many GERD surgeries and are specialized in delivering positive results to provide GERD relief.
