If your doctor recommends surgery to treat GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease), also known as Nissen fundoplication, you may be a candidate for minimally invasive robotic surgery at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Using the most advanced technology available, the da Vinci® Surgical System enables our surgeons to perform this delicate operation with breakthrough precision, superior vision, dexterity and improved access to the affected area. da Vinci Surgery offers GERD patients many potential benefits over both traditional and laparoscopic surgery, including:
- Lower risk of esophageal tears (perforations)
- Fewer complications
- Safer and more precise
As with any surgery, the above benefits cannot be guaranteed, as surgery is both patient- and procedure-specific. While robotic surgery for GERD (Nissen) is considered safe and effective, it may not be appropriate for every individual. Always ask your doctor about all treatment options, as well as their risks and benefits.
