GERD / Acid Reflux Treatment

Acid Reflux Surgery / Hiatal Hernia Repair / LINX

When stomach acid flows up into the esophagus, it causes acid reflux. Chronic or severe acid reflux is called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Depending on its severity, there are several options for GERD treatment. Surgery is a minimally invasive and durable option to stop acid reflux and eliminate the need for medication.

Hiatal hernia is often caused by weakened muscles and tissue around the hiatus. In some cases, a small part of the stomach pushes through the diaphragm and up into the chest. Surgical repair involves tightening the opening in the diaphragm to prevent the stomach from bulging through the muscle wall.

Why Choose Surgery for Chronic GERD?

Patients with heartburn often still have symptoms despite being on medication, even if taken once or twice a day, or even double the dose. Others have acid regurgitation to the mouth or throat, belching, and dry cough. Night-time regurgitation may cause poor quality of sleep.

Surgery eliminates heartburn and regurgitation, improves sleep quality, and ends life-long dependence on acid-blocking medications and dietary compromises to avoid symptoms.

Surgical Options to Eliminate Reflux Disease

Our surgeons perform laparoscopic and robotic anti-reflux surgery. Hiatal hernia repair, Nissen or toupet fundoplication, and the LINX Reflux Management System are standard surgical options to eliminate GERD.

These options offer successful treatment with surgical precision and faster recovery, and patients can go home the same day as surgery in most cases.

GERD / Acid Reflux Treatment

The surgeons at Capital Surgeons Group Acid Reflux Treatment Center can obtain the appropriate diagnostic testing GERD patients may need to ensure you are a candidate for surgery:

  • pH testing measures the acid from your stomach reaching the esophagus
  • EGD endoscopy visualizes the esophagus and stomach to identify hiatal hernias, evidence of reflux, or swallowing concerns
  • Manometry measures pressure that the muscles in the esophagus create and evaluates function of the esophagus
  • Barium Swallow provides visual assessment of the esophagus and stomach to determine the size of a hiatal hernia and the emptying of the esophagus
