In brief: Yes!
This is the most common anti-reflux procedure, involving closure of the hiatal hernia and re-creating a new valve by wrapping a portion of the stomach around the esophagus.
While very effective, this procedure is reserved for the rare patient who cannot manage their symptoms with lifestyle and dietary modifications supplemented by anti-acid medication. An incisionless option, tiff, is available 2.
