Acid Reflux Surgery Can Be DANGEROUS

Surgery for acid reflux is a medical intervention intended to relieve acid reflux symptoms and is also recommended by physicians as an extreme measure of treating severe cases of acid reflux. It is rarely considered in normal circumstances. It is mostly recommended to those patients whose condition cannot be controlled by either lifestyle changes or medication. 


Surgery In GERD

The surgical approach is strongly supported by conventional practitioners who tend to treat and perceive acid reflux, also called GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease), as a local impairment which can be treated by tackling the immediate symptoms of this condition. The conventional perspective focuses on the way in  which GERD occurs when the one-way valve at the bottom of the esophagus (called the lower esophageal sphincter, or LES) becomes pinched open, allowing food and stomach acid to travel back up to the esophagus. When the stomach content touches the lining of the esophagus, it leads to the common burning sensation in the chest and/or throat, also known as heartburn.


The standard surgery for gastro-esophageal reflux disease is Nissen fundoplication . The whole procedure is often done using a laparoscopic (minimally invasive surgery performed through small incisions) surgical technique, but can also be performed as a traditional open surgery.


During this surgery, the surgeon wraps parts of the stomach (i.e. gastric fundus) around the lower esophagus in order to strengthen the natural valve between the stomach and the esophagus. This is done to prevent the refluxed stomach content from coming into contact with the esophagus.


Unfortunately, there are several potential complications to fundoplication, and among them are nausea, abdominal cramping, gas bloat syndrome, swallowing problems and much more. Another significant downside of the surgical approach to GERD treatment is that it fails to recognize and tackle several crucial internal factors and co-factors properly, that create the environment that causes acid reflux. 

Surgery In GERD Is Dangerous!

An alternative to acid reflux surgery was a treatment available for a period of one year ending in late 2005. It was an implant of spongy named Enteryx, which is injected during endoscopy into the lower esophageal wall. However, in 2005 the FDA banned Enteryx after several injuries and one death. The Food and Drug Administration criticized the Enteryx marketer (Boston Scientific Corp.) for "ongoing systemic violations" of quality-control standards and said it wouldn't approve new products from the company until the deficiencies were corrected.


This incident can serve as an evidence for the risks associated with surgical procedures aimed at treating gastro-esophageal reflux disease. Fortunately, there is a safer and several times more effective alternative to surgery for acid reflux.
