Hiatal Hernia Repair Surgery

Find Relief From Acid Reflux

Heartburn is a very common condition experienced by adults all over the world. It can be the result of varying circumstances, but one of the most well-known reasons for heartburn is known as a hiatal hernia. This type of hernia occurs when the stomach protrudes through an opening in the diaphragm called the hiatus. The miVIP Surgical Clinic provides hiatal hernia repair for patients who would like to get relief from some of its more uncomfortable side effects.

Not all hiatal hernias produce symptoms, but when they do, they can be very uncomfortable for anyone experiencing them. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Acid reflux
  • Frequent burping
  • Regurgitation
  • Unexpected fatigue
  • Difficulty swallowing

Those who are particularly good candidates for laparoscopic surgery hernia repair are people who have GERD, or gastro esophageal reflux disease.

The Basics of Hiatal Hernia Repair

The best treatment for a hiatal hernia is laparoscopic surgery hernia repair. This procedure differs from traditional open surgery because it employs as small incision and a tiny camera for the surgeon to see the treatment site. The process is as follows:

  • The patient is given general anesthesia.
  • One or more tiny incisions are made in the abdomen hear the hernia.
  • Through one incision, the doctor inserts the camera and through the others the surgical tools.
  • The stomach and hiatus are moved into their proper positions and stitched into place.
  • Additional repairs are made at the discretion of the surgeon.
  • The small incisions are closed with sutures.

Recovering After Surgery

Although laparoscopic surgery hernia repair will shorten a patient’s recovery time, it is commonly expected that patients will stay in the hospital for one to three days post-op. However, it should only take two to three weeks for patients to return to normal activities. Some of the main reasons why minimally invasive hiatal hernia repair is so successful are because of:

  • Less time convalescing in a hospital
  • Lowered risk of infection
  • Noticeably less pain after surgery
  • Lessened bleeding and scarring
