GERD can be managed initially with the change of lifestyle and diets. But if you do not see any changes in the symptoms of GERD even after taking medicine and making changes in lifestyle, you are more likely to have a complication which may turn into a serious problem.
This is the most common and widely used surgery to treat the GERD. It also leads to long-term reflux control. An expert surgeon will perform fundoplication using a laparoscope, thin tube with a tiny video camera. In this process, a surgeon sews the top of the stomach around your esophagus to add pressure to the lower end of the esophagus and reduce reflux. Benefits of Fundoplication surgery:-
- Fastest Recovery.
- Return to normal activity within 1-2 days.
- Early discharge from the hospital within 1-2 day.
- Less pain.
No repeated doctor visits.
