Will he need surgery to relieve heart burn?

Probably not. Surgery is rare in children with gastroesophageal reflux disease, the usual cause of "heartburn." nearly all cases of reflux can be treated with special feeding techniques or medicine. Surgery is only used in very rare cases of severe, chronic reflux, or in children who are neurologically impaired (in these cases, reflux can lead to pneumonia). A healthy baby with reflux won't need surgery.
Unlikely. Surgery (called a nissen fundoplication) used to be a commonly accepted treatment for heartburn or reflux, but is rarely used nowadays except in extreme cases. More common treatments include specialized formulas, anti-acid medications, positioning of the baby and thickening feedings.
Heart burn. Not at al make sure that you discuss with your pediatrician possible medical treatments.
Probably not :) In most cases, heartburn is a transient problem due to reflux of stomach acid into esophagus. In many babies this resolves with age. There are a number of medications that can be prescribed to help alleviate the reflux. It is only in very rare circumstances (including neuromuscular disorders or severe failure to thrive) that a surgery is medially required for this otherwise common condition.

I have pyloric stenosis surgery as a child and now I am 32. I have mild but daily heart burn. Anything I should be aware of or do to correct this iss?

Chronic Gerd. You should see your doctor, or preferably a gastroenterologist, since your symptoms are occurring daily. Given your childhood history, the G.I. doctor may recommend that you have an EGD to look at the end of the stomach and see if there is any problem with outflow from the stomach. I suspect you may have just garden-variety acid reflux, however. Good luck. Read more...
Unrelated. This is unrelated to the childhood issue/surgery. You need to avoid either or caffeine, nicotine which are chemicals that aggravate this. Avoid laying down for an hour after eating. If these simple interventions do not help within 2 weeks, see your doc about the condition.If reflux is confirmed there are meds that can help. Read more...

I have hiatal hernia 4cm an grade reflux A! some dr says get surgery some not because I never have heart burn! I am confused what to do! Please help me!

Benefit vs. risk. How'd you even know that you have a HH & then get so much info? Did you ever have symptoms like heartburn, nausea, vomiting, stomach bleeding / ulcers? While 4 cm is a generous size, if you're not having symptoms, then weigh any (future) benefit of surgery with the risks of surgery (anesthesia, bleeding, infection, complications) which go up with age. Talk to the doc who knows you best. Good luck! Read more...

Further work-up need. Make sure you were also tested for h-pylori infection as sometimes it can produce similar symptoms. A hiatal hernia also needs to be ruled out. Sometimes anti-reflux surgery is needed when medical therapy fails. Read more...
Consider alternative. Not every medication in that class (ppi) works quite as well for an individual. Consider omeprazole, esomeprazole, pantoprazole, lansoprazole, deslansoprazole. Some patients benefit from addiing a pepsid class (h2) medi to their ppi regimen. Others may need to undergo surgical procedure of fundoplication. For any of these, you should return to your gastroenterologist for individual treatment. Read more...
