Endoscopic Surgery for Reflux Disease

Endoscopic Surgery for Reflux Disease

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a chronic back-up of stomach acid into the oesophagus. GERD can weaken the muscles that help move food down into the stomach, including the sphincter that closes the opening between the oesophagus and stomach.

How is it performed?

  • Before the procedure, the patient is sedated.
  • The doctor inserts an endoscope through the mouth and down into the oesophagus and stomach.
  • The doctor can then bind the end of the oesophagus to the top of the stomach to strengthen the area.
  • Once the stitches are in place, the endoscope is removed.
