Typically no, but...: A truly sizable hiatal hernia may be contributory to your symptoms. Is it fixed, sliding, para-esophageal? Before you consider surgery for the hiatal hernia and its manifestations of gerd, have you tried and failed appropriately-dosed acid blocker agents and anti-reflux diet modification? Has a ph study and manometry been considered? Does your stomach empty normally?
