Acid Reflux Surgery in Tamarac, FL

What Is Acid Reflux Surgery?

If you've ever felt a burn in your chest or throat after eating certain foods, then you already know how uncomfortable acid reflux can be. This sensation, commonly called heartburn, is caused by the regurgitation of stomach acid into the esophagus. While minor cases of acid reflux can be relieved with over-the-counter solutions, frequent or chronic reflux can lead to damage in the lining of the esophagus, a condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Acid reflux surgery (or fundoplication) is a procedure designed to tighten the opening between the esophagus and stomach so that digestive acids cannot come back up. Acid reflux surgery at Fernando E Bayron MD involves the placement of a LINX®, a small, flexible ring that goes around the esophagus to provide support and properly close off the stomach. With one minimally invasive procedure, you can once again enjoy the food and activities you love without living in fear of GERD. Schedule an appointment at our practice in Tamarac, FL to learn if you might benefit from acid reflux surgery.

How Does Acid Reflux Surgery Work?

To start, we'll administer general anesthesia to keep you asleep throughout the procedure. Using our advanced laparoscopic equipment, we'll make a series of tiny incisions around the abdomen to create space for surgical tools to be inserted. The scope includes a small camera, which allows our team to work without needing to make a large cut. We'll then install the LINX device around the area where the esophagus and stomach meet. The LINX is made up of titanium beads with magnets inside. As you swallow, the LINX will loosen, allowing food or liquids to pass through before closing again. Recovery after acid reflux surgery is quick, usually taking only a few days for most patients.

What Are the Benefits of Acid Reflux Surgery?

You may not often think about your esophageal health, but for individuals living with GERD, it can be a constant concern. Patients who undergo acid reflux surgery at our Tamarac, FL office enjoy a number of benefits for their health and quality of life, including:

  • Reduces uncomfortable symptoms associated with chronic acid reflux
  • Noninvasive approach means recovery is generally quick and easy
  • Allows you to enjoy foods that may otherwise cause acid reflux issues
  • Reduces risk of long-term esophageal damage and conditions, like Barret's esophagus
