Discussion Points for You and Your Physician


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?
