Laparoscopic Hernia Surgery and fundoplication

What is a Laparoscopic Fundoplication and Hiatal Hernia Repair?

Laparoscopic fundoplication is now considered the standard surgical approach for the treatment of severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

In laparoscopic (keyhole) fundoplication, a new “valve” is constructed as the upper portion of the stomach (fundus) is wrapped around the lower end of the esophagus. The wrap is intended to support the sphincter muscle so that it will open only when it is supposed to and not allow stomach acid to push its way up into the esophagus. The procedure consists of repairing the hiatal hernia then tightening the diaphragm opening with stitches or a mesh. Then the upper part of the stomach is wrapped around the end of the esophagus to prevent stomach acid and/or food from protruding into the esophagus.

  • Who is a candidate for this procedure?
  • Does acid reflux affect you daily?
  • Do you have a hiatal hernia?
  • Are you suffering from complications of acid reflux?

Do I need a laparoscopic fundoplication and hiatal hernia repair?
