Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is a minimally invasive procedure that restores normal functioning in your body’s natural reflux barrier (lower esophageal sphincter). At Stanford Health Care, our surgeons are among the most experienced in the country performing this procedure.
Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is one of the most common antireflux procedures. Unlike antireflux medications, laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication offers permanent relief for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Using minimally invasive techniques, we wrap the upper end of your stomach around the lower end of your esophagus. This strengthens your lower esophageal sphincter (your body’s natural reflux barrier) and prevents stomach acid from spilling into your esophagus.
As a laparoscopic procedure, we perform Nissen fundoplication using specialized tools we insert through very small incisions above your belly button (laparoscopy). At Stanford Health Care, our surgeons are internationally renowned laparoscopy experts with advanced training in minimally invasive techniques.
