Anti Reflux (GERD) Surgery

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.

What is GERD? Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a digestive disorder that causes gastric acid from the stomach to flow into the esophagus. This digestive disorder may eventually lead to more serious condition such as Barrett’s Esophagus and/or cancer.

Anti-Reflux (GERD) surgery is performed to reduce symptoms of GERD. GERD can occurs in people of all ages including babies and younger children. The most common type of GERD surgery is a fundoplication, a surgical procedure that tightens the muscle that divides the chest and the stomach, also referred to as the diaphragm.
