Failed GERD Surgery

Re-operation for Failed GERD Surgery

Nissen Fundoplication

Traditional GERD surgeries, in many instances, can fail after a few years. This can result in acid reflux re-occurence, difficulty swallowing or bloating. In these cases, removing the previous wrap and performing a gastroesophageal valvuloplasty is an option.

This has shown to provide the best results for relief of these symptoms and return to normal eating. However, it is very complex and requires a highly skilled surgeon in the procedure.

Dr. Gharagozloo has vast experience performing esophageal surgery. He is internationally recognized for re-operations for failed fundoplications. The Thoracic Surgery Program at AdventHealth Celebration offers a variety of surgical options including robotic-assisted procedures. These approaches have shown to produce the best and most lasting long-term results.
