GERD TREATMENTS

THE ANTI-REFLUX PROCEDURE

A minimally invasive laparoscopic fundoplication, also known as the ‘Anti-Reflux Procedure’ is covered by many health insurance plans because GERD is a very common problem.

 

The 'Anti-Reflux Procedure' requires only a few small incisions and that's what makes it minimally invasive. The laparoscope is a thin, lighted tube with  a camera on the end. It provides a live play-by-play of surgery when inserted through little incisions in the abdomen or pelvis and makes it so your surgeon doesn't need to perform an open surgery.

 

What this means for you is that you'll heal quicker  and get heartburn relief sooner! The fundoplication surgery works by strengthening and/or building up the barrier between your stomach and esophagus.

 

Strengthening this barrier makes it near impossible for stomach acids and food particles to jump over and back up into the esophagus - effectively curing the symptoms of GERD.

If you don't see a service listed but are interested - simply call, text or email and ask if we provide it! No questions go unanswered!

You can treat occasional mild heartburn with over-the-counter medications from a local pharmacy, but if you have been diagnosed with GERD it is a mechanical condition and you will need a Doctor to prescribe you medication or to undergo a surgical procedure.

 

Some actions you can take to help alleviate mild Acid Reflux symptoms are: avoiding dairy, chocolate, peppermint, fried and fatty foods, and eating smaller meals. Exercising and loosing weight can also lessen the severity of your symptoms, as will elevating your head with pillows while you sleep.
