NEED A SECOND OPINION?Request an Appointment
When you meet with your doctor, be sure to ask:
- What are the main risks of surgery?
- What if I have had previous abdominal surgery—can it still be done laparoscopically?
- How do you lengthen an esophagus?
- When do you need to lengthen the esophagus?
- How do you close the diaphragm?
- What will my recovery be like?
- What is the likelihood my paraesophageal hernia will come back?
