Nissen Fundoplication Procedure for Reflux
The Nissen Fundoplication is a laparoscopic surgery done through 5 small incisions that consists of folding (plicating) the stomach around the lower esophagus, thereby recreating a lower esophageal acid barrier which can restore the normal function of the gastroesophageal junction. When this procedure is performed, if a patient has a hiatal hernia, it is repaired at the same time.Learn more about Nissen Fundoplication
Medication for Reflux

Typical treatment methods include the use of antacids to neutralize stomach acid and medications that reduce acid production for short periods of time (H2 blockers) or long periods of time like proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s).Learn more about Medication for Reflux
