Hiatal Hernia Repair
at TLC Houston's Heartburn Center

A hiatal hernia occurs when part of the stomach bulges up through the hiatus, an opening in the diaphragm, and into the chest. This can often be painful and increase the symptoms of GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. At TLC we offer a minimally invasive procedure that can repair Hiatal Hernias and allow for normal function of the hiatus and reduce GERD symptoms.

If you are suffering from a hiatal hernia, contact us today. Our dedicated team of experienced surgeons and health care practitioners are here to help you regain your health.

How Does Hiatal Hernia Repair Work?

Hiatal Hernia surgery is a minimally invasive procedure in which your physician will repair your hernia by narrowing the opening in your diaphragm with sutures. This stops the stomach muscles from coming up through the hiatus and into the chest. This procedure may be performed in conjunction with other GERD procedures.
