SaiShree Hospital has always been one of the frontrunners to offer minimally invasive treatments for many surgeries. Continuing with this trend, we render Laparoscopic fundoplication surgery in Pune at our hospital to treat patients with Gastroesophageal reflux disease or simply known as acid reflux.
What leads to acid reflux?
The food we eat passes through a long tube called esophagus which has a one way valve called lower esophageal sphincter (LES) at the end. This valve allows food to pass into the stomach but prevents highly acidic digestive juices flowing back into esophagus. Acid reflux occurs when LES fails to function properly and thereby allowing acid to flow back.
Who needs fundoplication surgery?
Many of the patients with the symptoms of acid reflux diseases can be treated through medication. Having said that, fundoplication surgery also known as anti-reflux surgery may be necessary for patients who
- do not respond to medication
- experience major side effects due to medication
- wish to avoid long term medication
What does laparoscopic fundoplication involves?
As the objective of the surgery is to regulate the operation of the valve, laparoscopic surgical instruments are inserted into the body through incisions and the part of the stomach near esophagus is wrapped, gathered, and stitched. At SaiShree Hospital, the surgery is performed under the safe hands of a fundoplication surgeon in Pune, India. The surgery lasts for two hours and any sort of post-operative discomfort disappears in couple of days.
