If you suffer from ‘heartburn’ your surgeon may have recommended LAPAROSCOPIC
ANTI-REFLUX SURGERY to treat this condition, technically referred to as gastrooesophageal
reflux disease (GORD). Patients who do not respond well to lifestyle changes or drug therapy, or who continually
require medications to control their symptoms, will have to live with their condition or
undergo a surgical procedure. Surgery is very effective in treating GORD. Recently, this technique has been modified using laparoscopic (minimally invasive)
techniques that avoid the necessity of a large abdominal incision.
