StoneSprings Hospital Center's Minimally Invasive GERD Treatments
Visit with our specialists to schedule a thorough examination for an accurate diagnosis and discussion to determine if you might be a candidate for fundoplication, a form of GERD surgery.
- Nissen fundoplication, a laparoscopic procedure, repairs the esophageal valve or corrects hiatal hernia using the advanced technology of da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery. The less invasive da Vinci system allows surgeons to precisely target the exact area for repair. Da Vinci's precision reduces potential complications or harm to nearby tissues or vessels and minimizes scarring, blood loss, pain and discomfort, while shortening hospital stays and speeding recovery time. If you have other medical conditions, such as diabetes or hypertension, the less invasive da Vinci robotic-assisted surgery option may deliver benefits you'll want to discuss with your physician.
This minimally invasive procedure offers an alternative to drug therapies. They can provide a permanent solution for acid reflux disease and put an end to your discomfort and pain.
