New Webpage Describing Surgery to Treat Reflux

Given how often we see patients for reflux-triggered ENT problems and the questions we often get regarding surgical options, we have created a new webpage to discuss procedures used to try and cure reflux-triggered ENT symptoms.

Such symptoms may include:

Chronic cough
Phlegmy throat (lots of throat mucus)
Chronic throat-clearing
• Burning throat
Lump in throat sensation

Heartburn or any burning sensation may not be present at all!

Surgical options include not only the standard laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication which requires multiple small incisions over the belly, but trans-oral incisionless fundoplication whereby the surgery is all accomplished through the mouth.
