About this book


This book is intended for surgeons wanting to take their antireflux practice to an advanced level. It focuses on what experts do in real life, highlights pitfalls in skillful patient selection and fundoplication surgical technique, and addresses how to handle the “curve balls”.  It also provides recommendations on obtaining high patient satisfaction and building relationships with referring physicians.  It is intended as an “expert” level manual to help readers move to the next level in their practices. From patient assessment and selection, anticipation of perioperative challenges,  intraoperative problem-solving and technique, and postoperative management of side-effects, to reducing long-term recurrence rates and resumption of antisecretory medication, these expert authors dig deep to share the pearls of wisdom that make the difference between the average surgeon and the expert.

Written by experts in the field, Fundoplication Surgery: A Clinical Guide to Optimizing Results confronts the issues that have hindered the broader use of fundoplication nationally and is a valuable resource and reference guide for addressing ambiguous symptoms and test results in one’s practice.
