Gastro-esophageal reflux disease can be simply described as an uncomfortable burning sensation in the chest and sometimes upto the throat. GERD occurs when the stomach acid moves backward into the esophagus due to a defect in the lower esophageal sphincter.
GERD can be quite bothersome with heartburn, indigestion, difficulty in sleeping at times and sometimes food regurgitation in the mouth.
At AyILS, we evaluate the patients complaining of acid reflux/ heartburn and accordingly advise lifestyle modifications or medications. However, we believe that surgery is the best treatment option for patients with persistent symptoms requiring long term medications. Over 90 percent patients have been known to recover completely after GERD surgery
Minimally Invasive Surgery has made GERD correction much easier, with tiny incisions, quick recovery, less post-operative pain.
