About this book

This book aims to address the recent advances and controversies on the subject of hiatus hernia and antireflux surgery. The field of antireflux surgery is undergoing a lot of changes, and traditional concepts are being challenged. 
The readers are provided with an evidence based approach to assist surgeons' decisions in developing a preoperative investigative algorithm prior to offering a surgical solution for either primary or recurrent hiatal hernia surgery based on supporting evidence.
The chapters will further investigate the latest trends in minimally invasive hiatal hernia and antireflux surgery, both for primary and recurrent hernias.

“The book is intended for clinicians involved in the management of foregut pathology, and the target audience includes both surgeons and non-surgeons. … This is a concise reference on hiatal hernia surgery that uses an evidence-based approach in the discussion of the various operative considerations, outcomes assessment, and controversies that have plagued the field for decades.” (Peter Nau, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2018)
