What Is the Likelihood of Needing a Reoperation After My Reflux Surgery?
When reflux surgery is performed by a surgeon who specializes in surgery on the esophagus, it is long-lasting with excellent outcomes; it is 90% successful at 10 years. For the procedure, it is important to seek out an expert with a lot of experience.
For the small number of patients who have recurrent symptoms, only half of them will come in for another surgery. Given Dr. Bell’s vast experience and expertise, we are sent patients from all over the country. We perform on average 50 reoperations a year, which is more than anyone in the region.
To ensure that we are delivering effective and long-lasting treatments, Center for Esophageal Wellness emphasizes the importance of accurate diagnostic testing. We focus on identifying and fully understanding the extent of the issue before any work is performed so we can determine the best course of action for the procedure.
