Acid Reflux Surgery
What is Acid Reflux?
Acid reflux is a condition where the contents of your stomach move up into your esophagus. It is also called as acid regurgitation or gastroesophageal reflux. If you have symptoms of acid reflux for more than twice a week, then you might have a condition known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD
Acid Reflux happens when your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) doesn’t tighten or close properly, which allows the digestive juices and other contents of your stomach to rise up in your esophagus.
LES is a circular band of muscle at the end part of your esophagus which relaxes and opens when you swallow, then it tightens and closes again afterward.
Acid reflux can also cause an uncomfortable burning feeling inside your chest which can radiate up to your neck. This feeling is often called heartburn.
