If your doctor recommends surgery to treat GERD, (known as Nissen fundoplication), you may be a candidate for a safe, effective and minimally invasive procedure - da Vinci Surgery. Using the most advanced technology available, the da Vinci System enables your doctor to perform this delicate operation with breakthrough precision, superior vision, dexterity and improved access to the affected area. da Vinci Surgery offers GERD patients many potential benefits over traditional surgery, including:

  • Lower risk of esophageal tears (perforations)
  • Fewer complications
  • Safer and more precise

This procedure is performed using the da Vinci Surgical System, a technological breakthrough that enables surgeons to operate with unmatched precision, dexterity and control. By overcoming the limits of both traditional open and laparoscopic surgery, da Vinci is revolutionizing surgery. Read about how da Vinci Surgery enables surgeons to perform the most precise, minimally invasive surgery available today. 

As with any surgery, these benefits cannot be guaranteed since surgery is specific to each patient, condition and procedure. That's why it is important to always talk to your doctor about all treatment options, the risks and benefits.
