In this video, the Detroit Medical Center and Huron Valley – Sinai Hospital offers a new treatment that can help relieve patients from this condition. With the help of modern technology and science, people can now get rid of their reflux for good. 

Nissen Fundoplication is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the upper part of the stomach to be wrapped around the lower end of the esophagus. This is then stitched into place which helps in the reinforcement of the lower esophageal sphincter.

This video will explain to you the whole process of this surgery and how long will it take the patient to recover.
