Surgery is considered when symptoms do not improve with medications, if they repeatedly return after the medication is stopped, if lifelong medication is needed, if you are unwilling or unable to take medication for prolonged periods, or if there is severe damage to the esophagus due to reflux. A large hiatus hernia, esophageal ulcer, narrowing or change in the lining of the esophagus, such as Barrett's esophagus may be further indications for surgical therapy. You may be a candidate for Laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery or ESOPHYX, the revolutionary new incisionless procedure to cure GERD.
Dr. Neil Floch, Dr.Craig Floch and Dr. Abe Fridman of Fairfield County Bariatrics & Surgical Specialists, P.C. can provide you with the permanent solution to these problems. Both surgeons are highly acclaimed pioneers in the procedures, having performed acid reflux surgeries for ten years and offer Lap Nissen, Lap Toupet, LINX Reflux Management System, ESOPHYX/TIF®, Hiatal Hernia and Paraesophageal Hernia repair surgery. They will provide the most safe professional surgical care to help you through the process of reclaiming your life without having these issues. You will be able to return to a healthy full life, eating the foods you love, and doing all of the activities that brought you so much enjoyment before you started to suffer with GERD.
