an operation performed to help prevent gastroesophageal reflux
Laparoscopic procedure developed for management of acid reflux or chronic heartburn, also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). The procedure consists of wrapping the stomach around the lower 4-6cm of the esophagus and suturing the stomach in place.
Operation designed to treat acid reflux disease. This procedure is performed by general surgeons. This procedure may be done using minimally invasive techniques by specially trained surgeons.
an operation that helps treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The fundus (top of the stomach) is pulled around the esophagus and sewn. This helps prevent food from moving back from the stomach into the esophagus by creating a muscular band at the top of the stomach, which becomes tighter as the stomach fills up.
Operation to sew the top of the stomach (fundus) around the esophagus; used to stop stomach contents from flowing back into the esophagus (reflux) and to repair a hiatal hernia.
Surgical treatment for acid reflux or GERD. da Vinci Nissen Fundoplication provides surgeons with superb visualization of esophagogastric anatomy while enhancing dexterity and affording increased precision required for delicate suturing.
Nissen fundoplication is a surgical procedure to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and hiatus hernia. In GERD it is usually performed when medical therapy has failed, but in particular types of hiatus hernia (the paraoesophageal variant), it is the first-line procedure. It may accompany surgery for achalasia (more specifically, a Heller myotomy).
