On this page is a four-part video series that will guide you through the process and be a starting point. Each video is 10 minutes or less. My goal is that by spending 1-2 hours on this site, and associated links, you will become as much of an expert on GERD as a non-medical person could be.
There are three general surgical interventions available at this time. They are all quite different, and some are more heavily marketed than others. I will provide the links to the sites for each procedure. These sites will of course present their respective procedures as the sole option, which is of course not the case.
I will provide links to pertinent medical studies and other information that you may find helpful.
If the video slider doesn’t work for you in your browser, the videos are also displayed linearly in this blog post.
When reading Medical Literature
- Assign more value to the most recent data.
- Assign more value to data accessible on the NCBI/NIH network and in major medical journals that are obvious by their name generally.
- Focus on the discussion or summary of an article as it will be more readable.
- If you don’t understand something and are concerned about it, ask your surgeon or doctor.
