Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
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.
