Anti-Reflux Surgery Dallas, Fort Worth, Mansfield & Plano, TX

GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is a widely common condition, especially in the US, with more than 60 million Americans experiencing symptoms of acid reflux. Although acid reflux is not a major health concern, if not treated in time, it may lead to worse conditions. The production of gastric acid in the stomach can damage the esophagus and in some cases lead to esophageal cancer. If you are experiencing severe acid reflux and looking for permanent relief, antireflux surgery may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Sachin Kukreja and the team at DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery in Dallas, Fort Worth, Mansfield & Plano specialize in performing reflux surgery and providing comprehensive aftercare.

What is Hernia?

A Hernia is a bulge that results when internal organs push through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in its place. This typically happens at places of inherent weakness (diaphragm = hiatal hernia, groin = inguinal hernia, belly buttom = umbilical hernia, etc.) allowing the passage of structures through a hole that shouldn’t be there. Groin/Inguinal and Umbilical hernias are the most common to need repair. Some of the known risk factors for Hernia include smoking, pregnancy, obesity, collagen vascular disease, peritoneal dialysis, damage from injury or disease, old age, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

  • Acid burning sensation
