How does the procedure work?

A specially designed endoscope with a camera is transorally (through the mouth) placed into the stomach and the stomach is inflated. The scope is then positioned to view the junction between the esophagus and the stomach. Next, the physician will pull down the tissue from the gastroesophageal valve (GEV) and  wraps the tissue around to make a new valve. This newly created valve is fastened to fuse the tissue. During this time if there is a hiatal hernia the surgeon will also fix it saving you the hassle of having to have another operation.
