Are you suffering from recurrent vomiting, chest pain, reflux, dysphagia and dyspeptic symptoms? Have you undergone an upper G.I. Endoscopy or a CT scan showing a hiatal hernia?

This entity, like other herniae, is an abnormal  protrusion of the different organs, especially the stomach, through the oesophageal hiatus, to varying degrees, alone or in combination with other organs into your chest cavity. Is it a problem? Yes, the nature and severity of such herniae has to be diagnosed early by a specialist gastroenterologist or upper G.I surgeon. There are 4 types: Sliding, Rolling (paraesophageal), combined, or mixed.

The diagnosis is established by an endoscopy and a CT scan. The treatment is SURGICAL alone, and especially in the para-oesophageal variety, has to be performed with haste, owing to silent, but deadly complications. A thorough evaluation by pH and manometric studies is important for anti-reflux surgery, but can be omitted in cases of symptomatic herniae.

At Pelvinic-Apollo Spectra, we offer laparo-thoracoscopic treatment of all degrees and types of hiatal hernia, along with fundo-plication of various types, depending on your specific requirement. The repair of hiatal defects can be performed both with and without mesh placement.  Gall-bladder and other pathologies can be tackled at the same time as well. There is often no need for another surgery at a later date. Such complex and combined surgeries must be performed by skilled surgeons at centres of expertise, such as ours.

Some of the highlights of our care are short stay surgery, reduced port surgery, combined and hybrid techniques of approach, individualized tailored treatment protocols, widest variety of treatment options; all provided at affordable rates. Drop in at our specialty OPD at Apollo Spectra Pelvinic Gurugram today to get the best treatment plan chalked out specifically for you. Remember that with this uncommon disease, a stitch in time literally saves nine!!!
