GERD occurs when the stomach acid moves up into the tube that connects the stomach with the
mouth, irritating the esophagus. Conditions and behaviors like obesity, hiatal hernias, smoking,
and eating or drinking a certain type of food and beverages can increase the risk of GERD. Open
or laparoscopic surgery is only considered after other forms of treatment have been tried. With
surgery, the lower part of the esophagus is wrapped to increase pressure and prevent the stomach
acids to move back.
