About this book

This book is intended for surgeons wanting to take their antireflux practice to an advanced level. It focuses on what experts do in real life, highlights pitfalls in skillful patient selection and fundoplication surgical technique, and addresses how to handle the “curve balls”.  It also provides recommendations on obtaining high patient satisfaction and building relationships with referring physicians.  It is intended as an “expert” level manual to help readers move to the next level in their practices. From patient assessment and selection, anticipation of perioperative challenges, intraoperative problem-solving and technique, and postoperative management of side-effects, to reducing long-term recurrence rates and resumption of antisecretory medication, these expert authors dig deep to share the pearls of wisdom that make the difference between the average surgeon and the expert.

Written by experts in the field, Fundoplication Surgery: A Clinical Guide to OptimizingResults confronts the issues that have hindered the broader use of fundoplication nationally and is a valuable resource and reference guide for addressing ambiguous symptoms and test results in one’s practice.

Reviews

“The purpose is to provide guidance from the giants in the field of antireflux surgery on the management of complex foregut cases. … It should be required reading for minimally invasive fellows because they will rarely come across the shortened esophagus or difficult to close hiatus early in their career. … Having this book in their library and being familiar with its content gives surgeons a leg up in those difficult cases so that patients can experience a good outcome.” (Peter Nau, Doody’s Book Reviews, April, 2016)
