What About Hiatal Hernias in Orlando Patients?

The hiatus is an opening through which food travels through the esophagus and into the stomach. A hiatal hernia is when part of the stomach pushes through that opening in the muscular wall. Small hiatal hernias often go unnoticed. Larger hiatal hernias are accompanied by unpleasant symptoms.

These symptoms include foods or liquids coming back up into the throat after being swallowed, pain from acid flowing back up into the esophagus, chest pain, abdominal pain, heartburn, bleeding, shortness of breath, and difficulty swallowing.

Treatment of hiatal hernias

A simple hiatal hernia may be managed with antacids or acid-neutralizing medications.

A larger hiatal hernia may require surgery to reposition the stomach and secure it so that it doesn’t migrate back through the hiatus. Laparoscopic surgery keeps this treatment from being too invasive.

If you think you may have a hiatal hernia, contact the physicians at Orlando Gastroenterology today.
