Gastroscopy Instructions E-mail
A gastroscopy is a procedure that enables the doctor to see the lining of the stomach for abnormalities.

Fundoplication Surgery - Informed Consent E-mail
During fundoplication surgery, the upper curve of the stomach (the fundus) is wrapped around the esophagus and sewn into place so that the lower portion of the esophagus passes through a small tunnel of stomach muscle. This surgery strengthens the valve between the esophagus and stomach (lower esophageal sphincter), which stops acid from backing up into the esophagus as easily. This allows the esophagus to heal.
