Nissen Fundoplication Surgery to Treat Reflux [VIDEO]

This animation goes over how reflux surgery has traditionally been performed when medical and lifestyle management fail to resolve reflux symptoms. Called the Nissen Fundoplication or stomach wrap, the procedure essentially involves wrapping the top part of the stomach around the lower esophageal sphincter like a belt using tiny instruments inserted through small abdominal incisions. This surgery is typically performed by a skilled general surgeon.

The video below shows not only the same animation, but also actual surgical footage of the Nissen fundoplication performed by Dr. Kevin Gillian at the Virginia Heartburn and Hernia Institute.
