As doctors continue to look for better ways to prevent the causes of hernias, paraesophageal hernia research helps to develop better treatment options and prevention techniques.
In fact, through paraesophageal hernia clinical trials, doctors were able to develop a new, less invasive laparoscopic procedure that repairs hernias. Like this breakthrough, doctors continue to develop new treatments for paraesophageal hernia that do not require surgery and can decrease recovery time.
Ongoing paraesophageal hernia research also works to find the causes of hiatal hernias to help prevent this condition and to find the connection between hiatal hernia and GERD .
