Hiatal Hernia Repair

– A hiatal hernia is often discovered during a test or procedure to determine the cause of heartburn, chest, or upper abdominal pain. Surgery to repair a hiatal hernia may involve pulling the stomach down into the abdomen and repairing the defect in the diaphragm. Dr. Sousa performs Hiatal Hernia Repairs robotically through small incisions. The patient typically spends one night in the hospital and goes home in the morning after Foregut Surgery.

Antireflux Surgery

– People with severe, chronic reflux might need surgery to correct their problem if their symptoms are not relieved through medical treatments. There are many long term morbidities that develop from untreated GERD. Robotic Antireflux Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that corrects GERD by creating a new valve mechanism at the bottom of the esophagus. The patient typically spends one night in the hospital and goes home in the morning.

Heller Myotomy

– This is a minimally invasive procedure that helps patients dealing with dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) by performing a myotomy to help relax the esophagus. This surgery is performed robotically through small incisions. The patient typically spends one night in the hospital and goes home in the morning.
