Expertise in Diagnosing & Treating GERD
Many people who suffer from frequent or chronic acid reflux are experiencing a condition called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Some of the more common symptoms associated with this type of reflux include heartburn, difficulty swallowing, excessive salivation, regurgitation, bloating and intolerance of certain foods. This is a condition Fox Valley Surgical Associates (FVSA) specializes in with expertise in both diagnosis and treatment.
Minimally Invasive GERD Treatments
- TIF – a procedure that reconstructs the valve between the esophagus and stomach to protect against acid reflux (watch FVSA video with Dr. Janu)
- LINX – another option for treatment that places a magnetic bracelet around the esophagus to create pressure and reduce acid reflux (watch FVSA video with Dr. Janu)
- Laparoscopic Fundoplication – a treatment for GERD and hiatal hernia that wraps part of the stomach around the esophageal sphincter to prevent reflux flow
