Options for treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
In most cases, lifestyle changes and medications are enough to prevent and relieve symptoms of GERD. However, sometimes other types of treatment are required. The more advanced options are the Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) procedure and traditional antireflux surgery.
Traditional or conventional, antireflux surgery has been considered an effective solution for treating GERD for a long time. The surgery involves several abdominal incisions and typically includes side effects such as difficulty swallowing (26%), bloating (36%), and increased flatulence (65%).
