Previous Failed Antireflux Surgery - Treatment
The “redo” operation should address the exact cause of failure and should be performed in specialized, high-volume centers by experienced surgeons.
A first-time redo antireflux surgery can be performed by minimally invasive approach.
The most common procedure will be a redo laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication.
The procedure may need to be done via a laparotomy (an incision in the abdomen) in selected patients. If multiple surgeries have failed, an esophagectomy (esophageal replacement) may be required.
