Hiatal Hernia

A hiatal hernia occurs when part of the stomach bulges up through the hiatus, an opening in the diaphragm and into the chest. This can often be painful and increase the symptoms of GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. At TLC we offer a minimally invasive procedure that can repair Hiatal Hernias and allow for normal function of the hiatus and reduce GERD symptoms.

How Does Hiatal Hernia Repair Work

Hiatal Hernia surgery is a minimally invasive procedure in which your physician will repair your hernia by narrowing the opening in your diaphragm with sutures. This stops the stomach muscles from coming up through the hiatus and into the chest. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with GERD procedure if a hernia is present.
