Gastrointestinal Surgery in Baltimore, Maryland

Laparoscopic Reflux/Hiatal Hernia Repair

Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a widespread condition presenting with heartburn, regurgitation, hoarseness and pain or difficulty with swallowing food. It is a result of dysfunction of the normal valve mechanism at the junction of the esophagus and stomach. It is often associated with hiatal hernia of variable degree. When the stomach is displaced into the chest it can cause nausea, vomiting, pain after eating or progressive inability to swallow food. Surgery designed to correct the valve mechanism is called Fundoplication and is combined with hiatal hernia repair. We perform a partial or Toupet fundoplication which has no significant side-effects as widely done complete Nissen fundoplication.

Laparoscopic Gallbladder/Bile Duct Surgery

Laparoscopic surgery for gallstones /chronic cholecystitis/biliary dyskinesia and acute inflammation of the gallbladder due to gallstone disease in the past 20 years became a standard of care with very few open procedures performed. It is a gallbladder surgery that demonstrated and confirmed all the advantages of minimally invasive surgery to the surgical community. Almost every general surgeon is currently trained to perform this surgery.
