Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

Service:

Nissen Fundoplication has a long track record with exceptional results and can be performed on almost every severe GERD patients. It is the most commonly performed fundoplication worldwide. During the procedure, the surgeon wraps the top part of the stomach around the esophagus to prevent the backflow of acids. It increases the LES’ resting pressure, re-establishes the proper angle at which the esophagus enters the stomach, and tightens the esophagus’ passageway through the diaphragm’s hiatus.
