When diet and medication no longer control chronic GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) symptoms, Duke gastroenterologists use endoscopic procedures to view the inside of your digestive tract to identify the reason for your discomfort. In some cases, a hiatal hernia (or a type of hiatal hernia called paraesophageal hernia) may be to blame.

Once the cause is diagnosed, your gastroenterologist may recommend a minimally invasive treatment to give you relief. These specialized procedures are performed by skilled surgeons with extensive experience treating GERD and related conditions.
