In severe cases where the individual is at risk of esophageal cancer, surgery is the only option. Laparoscopic surgery is a noninvasive GI tract surgery that has a high success rate. Overall, patients that are about to undergo this type of treatment shouldn’t fear too much.
The chance that tissue will heavily scar or that the surgery will have major complications is relatively low. With this procedure, the troubled part of the GI tract is pushed back in its place. For example, in a hiatal hernia, the diaphragm is lowered to its natural position.
