Are You Suffering From Acid Reflux?

Learn more about treatment and surgery options

If you suffer from acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), you know how painful and uncomfortable it is. You can't eat certain foods, you have painful heartburn on a regular basis and your stomach doesn't settle easily. It can be hard to go about your day without being affected by acid reflux or GERD.

Comprehensive Surgery Clinic provides treatment and surgery options for these conditions. Our #1 goal is to help you enjoy a normal life. Contact us today to learn more about surgery and treatment options.

Find relief through effective surgery

In some cases, the symptoms of acid reflux and GERD can be reduced by simple lifestyle changes, such as:

  • Eliminating specific foods from your diet
  • Reducing your alcohol consumption
  • Stopping smoking
  • Changing your sleep patterns
  • Taking over-the-counter antacids

While this will improve your condition, it will not eliminate it or provide complete relief. Fortunately, Comprehensive Surgery Clinic provides Nissen fundoplication to fix the hiatal hernia that is causing the problem. This surgery can also allow you to be able to discontinue use of PPI (proton pump inhibitors) such as Nexium, which can have long term side effects.

During surgery, the valve between the stomach and esophagus is reinforced, and the upper part of the stomach is wrapped around the lower part of the esophagus. Studies have shown that the majority of individuals who undergo Nissen fundoplication for acid reflux and GERD experience complete relief or a major improvement in their condition.
