What Is It?
Fundoplication, or laparoscopic fundoplication, is a surgical procedure to treat gastrointestinal c A fundoplication is a type of laparoscopic surgery. A surgeon will use a long, thin tool called a laparoscope, which has both surgical tools and a camera attached to it. onditions such as GERD and hiatal hernias. This allows the surgeon to make small incisions in the body and feed the laparoscope into place, rather than making larger cuts that expose the organs. Once in place, the laparoscope sends a video feed to a monitor, which the surgeon will look at to perform the surgery. For a fundoplication, the surgeon will gather the uppermost part of the stomach, called the fundus, and gently wrap and suture it around the lower esophageal sphincter. This helps increase pressure in the esophagus and make acid reflux less likely.
As a laparoscopic surgery, fundoplication generally has a better recovery time than open surgery. Laparoscopic surgeries are less invasive and only require a few small cuts in the body. These surgical wounds typically take less time to heal than larger cuts. The process may also reduce the risk of long-term scarring, as well as pain during recovery. After fundoplication surgery, a person can typically expect to go home from the hospital within 2 days. They will receive special instructions on how to care for their surgical wounds. This often includes not bathing for the first days after being discharged, regularly changing the dressings on wounds, and washing the wounds with gentle soap.
