In brief: Yes

The most common operation to treat gerd is a laparoscopic fundoplication, where the top of the stomach is wrapped around the esophagus, effectively creating a new valve to limit reflux.
This operation is not for the "casual refluxer", whose symptoms can be managed with meds and lifestyle changes since this operation will change the way you process food and has side effects that can be bothersome.
