Gerd surgery

GERD, also known as Gastro-esophageal reflux disease or acid reflux disorder refers to the condition characterized by the back flow(reflux) of the stomach content like stomach acid and bile in to the oesophagus. The oesophagus is the hollow, muscular organ that carries food and liquids from the throat to the stomach.

Normally, during digestion process, the lower oesophageal sphincter (LES) present at the junction of oesophagus and stomach opens to let the food pass into the stomach and closes to block the back flow of the food and stomach acidic juices into the oesophagus. However, in case of GERD, the reflux occurs due to weak LES or if it works or relaxes in inappropriate way.

GERD results in oesophageal inflammation and thereby increasing of ulcers, narrowing of oesophageal stricture or oesophageal cancer.

GERD is always associated with the chronic heartburn which is most common symptom of GERD. Acid regurgitation that is reflux of gastric acid into mouth is the other common symptom. Other less common symptoms are;

If you are suffering from the GERD symptoms and medicines and other non-surgical methods have not helped, you can be considered for Fundoplication surgery.

Surgical procedure for laparoscopic fundoplication

Laparoscopic Fundoplication, also known as Nissen Fundoplication, is done under general anaesthesia. After taking all aseptic precautions, surgeon makes tiny incisions in your abdomen and a sterile tube is inserted through which Carbon dioxide gas is passed to separate the abdominal wall and underlying organs. Then, a laparoscope is inserted through one of the incisions and the laparoscopic images are projected on the monitor to inspect the area. Once it is done, the specialized surgical instruments, trocars and cannulas are inserted through other incisions. The weak lower oesophageal sphincter is reinforced by draping the upper part of the stomach to the lower part of oesophagus. This helps in reinforcing the LES to avoid the reflux.

Recovery is usually easy and smooth after the surgery. You shall get discharged from the hospital the next day of the operation. You may feel some pain and discomfort for few days which can be resolved with pain medications. You can resume your daily activities within a week, but heavy work ad exercises should wait for 8-10 weeks. Your doctor may advise you to start with liquid diet and gradually switch to semi solids and then solid food.

The results of Fundoplication surgery for GERD are good. You can expect relief from the acid reflux syndrome. Acid reflux medicines are usually not required after the procedure.
