Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can present with a host of symptoms, the most common of which are heartburn, regurgitation, and dysphagia. In general, surgery is reserved for patients with troublesome symptoms despite adequately dosed proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or with complications of reflux such as recurrent or refractory esophagitis, stricture, Barrett’s metaplasia, and asthma.
