This procedure is aimed at reducing the symptoms of esophageal reflux. The incisionless procedure is inserted through the patient's mouth and is used to reconstruct the gastroesophageal valve.
This surgical procedure uses a small, lighted tube through an incision in the belly. Laparoscopy can be used to find cysts, fibroids and infections; tissue can also be biopsed during the procedure.
