GERD Treatment

GERD Treatment Banner

GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is commonly referred to as acid reflux or heartburn. When lifestyle changes and medicine do not reduce symptoms like a burning pain in the chest, a bitter taste at the back of the mouth, or difficulty swallowing, your doctor may suggest surgery.

GERD treatment with the da Vinci robotic system

You can discuss surgical treatment options with an ARC board certified general surgeon. Surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux, including hiatal hernia repair and partial or complete fundoplication, can be performed in a minimally invasive fashion with the utilization of robotic technology that allows faster recovery and eliminates symptoms.

Contact your physician to set up an appointment with your surgeon, who can guide you through the proper evaluation, preparation, and surgical treatment of GERD.
