Laparoscopic Hiatal Hernia Repair in NYC
What is laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair?
A hiatal hernia occurs when a patient suffers from a defect in the diaphragm, which allows the upper stomach or other abdominal organs to enter the chest cavity through the diaphragm. This causes gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which can cause intense pain and destruction of the esophageal lining when stomach acid enters the chest. For some patients, surgical intervention is needed as soon as possible to fix the herniated area and prevent further health complications. This kind of procedure is known as laparoscopic diaphragmatic hernia repair or laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair.
