Esophageal and gastric surgery

Primarily laparoscopic interventions

With very few exceptions, the following surgeries are minimally invasive:

  • Tumours
    Particularly cancers of the oesophagus and stomach
  • Anti-reflux surgery
    Long, wide-ranging experience (since 1993) with first and repeat surgeries to correct gastric reflux, with or without concomitant diaphragmatic hernia
  • Hernia repair surgery
