Diagnosis

It is usually done when you are visiting the doctor for GERD symptoms, and it is made using the same diagnostic tools.

Treatment

Occasional or mild symptoms can generally be treated by nonsurgical means, including lifestyle changes and nonprescription medicines.

When symptoms are frequent and/or intense, surgery is needed, the stomach is returned to the abdominal cavity and the hiatus is closed with sutures, nevertheless Dr. Rosales uses a special mesh in order to reinforce the hiatus closure since the recurrence rates are very high when a mesh is not used.
