APPETIZERS (Endoscopy)

EGD

Upper GI endoscopy. The most important diagnostic test to evaluate for the presence of Hiatal Hernia and rule out other pathology.

PH TESTING

Forty-eight hour ambulatory esophageal pH testing to confirm the presence of abnormal acid in the esophagus.

ESOPHAGEAL MANOMETRY

Determines the force of muscle contraction in the esophagus.

BARIUM ESOPHAGRAM

An X-Ray test that is complementary to endoscopy and gives important information about the anatomy and function of the esophagus.

ENTRÉES (Surgery)

TIF

An intraluminal surgery performed through the mouth/inside the stomach to rebuild the gastroesophageal valve. Indicated for a small hiatal hernia. Can be performed along with laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair.

Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation of the LES. A bracelet of magnetized metal beads placed around the distal esophagus with laparoscopic surgery, to augment a weak lower esophageal sphincter. Can be used along with hiatal hernia repair or bariatric surgery.

NISSEN FUNDOPLICATION

The traditional standard for anti-reflux surgery and remains a useful option for some patients.

LAPAROSCOPIC HIATAL HERNIA REPAIR

Fixing the Foundation. Most patients with GERD have some degree of herniation of the stomach into the chest; it's essential that the stomach is restored to its normal position.
