During fundoplication surgery, the upper curve from the stomach (the fundus) is wrapped round the esophagus and sewn into place so the lower part of the esophagus passes via a small tunnel of stomach muscle. This surgery strengthens the valve between your esophagus and stomach (lower esophageal sphincter), which stops acid from backing up to the esophagus as easily. This enables the esophagus to heal.
This process can be achieved through the abdomen or even the chest. The chest approach is usually used if an individual is overweight or includes a short esophagus.
This procedure is usually done utilizing a laparoscopic surgical technique. Outcomes of the laparoscopic technique would be best once the surgery is done by a surgeon with experience using this procedure.
If a person has a hernia, which could cause gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms, it will also be repaired in this surgery.
