Anti reflux surgery: Gerd can be managed well with medications and diet manipulations. Avoiding alcohol and nicotine will help reduce your reflux. The decision to proceed to surgery is made over time, usually after medical therapies have been used, and egd/manometry studies show progression of damage to lower esophagus like Barretts. Okay to ask for surgery referral to get details on your case. Be well
