Anti Reflux Surgery or Fundoplication
Anti-reflux surgery or fundoplication is a condition in which the stomach acid comes back up from the stomach into the oesophagus.
In this procedure, the surgeon puts together the top part of the oesophagus called the fundus (the uppermost part of the oesophagus that ends at the stomach) with the stomach using a long band of muscle called the gastroesophageal junction. The surgery is done using general anaesthesia, and it takes about 2 to 3 hours to perform the surgery.
Why it’s done?
Anti-reflux surgery is a surgical procedure that prevents reflux by placing a permanent stent in the oesophagus. The routine procedure is performed to open up the previously closed lower oesophagal sphincter and prevent acid buildup in the stomach. The Savaikar Hospital is best known for its effective treatments. This can help people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or chronic heartburn
What to expect?
The procedure usually takes less than two hours and you will be able to go home after the surgery is over. You will need someone to drive you home because there may be some discomfort, but it shouldn't be anything that you can't handle. The professional doctors in the Savaikar Hospital can help diagnose your problem and recommend possible treatments at affordable prices. The auxiliary staff of the hospital is cordial and sensitive to your needs.
