In brief: Perhaps
But a fundoplication may get loose or come apart and may require a repeat operation.

In brief: Usually
Surgical treatment for gerd results in significant symptom improvement in over 95% of patients immediately after the surgery.
Approximately 10% of patients will develop some heartburn years later, yet it is rarely back to the same degree as before surgery.
