Why Choose Florida Hospital?
A relatively uncommon condition, paraesophageal hiatal hernia accounts for a small percentage of hernia cases, but can create an emergency situation. Paraesophageal hiatal hernia occurs when the stomach pushes into the chest through the opening for the esophagus and can’t return back to the belly. When this causes painful symptoms, the patient must be treated to avoid complications. The symptoms of hiatal hernia often mimic those of other gastrointestinal conditions; so reliable screening at Florida Hospital is the best way to get the treatment needed.
