If you have GERD and have had surgery for a laparoscopic or robotic Nissen fundoplication but are still suffering from reflux symptoms or having worse symptoms, we may be able to help you. Did you have to resume taking anti-reflux medications like Prilosec or Nexium? You would first need a thorough evaluation of your current esophageal anatomy and physiology, which we can arrange. It may be as simple as determining that something else caused the symptoms, like a gall bladder. Once we have determined that there is a definite problem, Dr. Johnson has many years of experience in taking down prior fundoplications to repair the hiatal hernia and reconstruct the anti-reflux valve. There is a much greater chance of success if mesh was not used to repair the hiatal hernia in the first operation.
