Nissen Fundoplication London, United Kingdom
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a common gastrointestinal disorder which is usually controllable by the use of medications but occasionally medications fail, or don' suffice. When this is the case, doctors have to turn to surgery. Nissen fundoplication is an effective therapy for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, with majority of patients feeling extremely satisfied, and a very low rate of complications. Mr. Marcus Reddy, together with Dr. Elliot Goodman, MD, will soon be offering this beneficial and innovative procedure to those in the London, United Kingdom area.
Nissen Fundoplication is a surgery performed as an effort to better manage Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD). If left untreated, this condition can cause several complications including oesophageal cancer and lung damage. The operation is done by wrapping the "fundus" (the top part of the stomach) around the back of the oesophagus until it is once again in front. This has the outcome of generating a one-way valve in the oesophagus, allowing food to pass into the stomach, and at the same time, strengthens the valve between the oesophagus and stomach in an effort to prevent stomach acid from flowing into the oesophagus causing damage and pain from chronic reflux.
Dr. Elliot Goodman is a bariatric and general surgeon with over twenty years of experience, and Mr. Marcus Reddy is experienced with a number of gastric procedures, including Nissen Fundoplication. If you or a loved one is looking for a doctor to properly and effectively treat you, Mr. Reddy and Dr. Goodman will soon be offering surgery for reflux disease to those in the London, United Kingdom. Call today for more information.
