What is Gerd?
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) happens when stomach acid and food flow backwards up into the esophagus instead of down into the stomach.

Anti - Reflux Procedure
The 'anti-reflux procedure" also known as minimally invasive laparoscopic fundoplication (Nissen Fundoplication) is a surgery where the surgeon performs only a few, small incisions in the abdomen or pelvis . A thin, lighted tube with a camera is placed through the incisions and the barrier between your stomach and esophagus are strengthened. This makes it near impossible for stomach acids and food particles to jump over and back up into the esophagus.
