What is a hiatal hernia?
A hiatal hernia occurs when a part of the stomach pushes up through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. This condition can cause symptoms such as heartburn, acid reflux, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing. In severe cases, it can lead to complications like esophagitis or Barrett’s esophagus.

1. Lifestyle Modifications:
Dietary changes to avoid trigger foods
Weight management strategies
Guidance on proper eating habits and meal timing

2. Medications:
Antacids to neutralize stomach acid
H2-receptor blockers to reduce acid production
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) for long-term acid reduction

3. Minimally Invasive Surgery:
Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication: This procedure involves wrapping the top of the stomach around the lower esophagus to strengthen the valve between the esophagus and stomach.
Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF): A less invasive option performed through the mouth, creating a new valve mechanism to prevent acid reflux.
