Laparoscopic Anti Reflux And Hiatus Hernia Surgery

If you suffer from acid reflux and/or are known to have a hiatus hernia, you may benefit from having an operation to prevent acid reflux. This operation is called fundoplication, and is carried out in a keyhole fashion. I will undertake a detailed assessment in clinic, and you will require a series of tests to confirm acid reflux and/or hiatus hernia including endoscopy. Most hiatus hernias do not require to be fixed unless they cause troublesome acid reflux or are of a large size. There are some risks and side-effects of this operation and I will be discussing this in great detail at the appointment.
