Laparoscopic Anti-Reflux (GERD) Surgery is performed on patients that suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This is a condition in which contents from the stomach rise up into the esophagus due to poor muscle function of the gastroesophageal sphincter. During the surgery, the surgeon will use small incisions to access the abdominal cavity, and will use a laparoscope (tube with light/camera) to view the area of concern. He or she will then repair the hiatal hernia (if present) then tighten the sphincter using part of the stomach.
