Treating GERD​

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is the most common gastrointestinal-related diagnosis made by physicians during clinical visits in the U.S. It’s estimated that pain and discomfort from acid reflux impact over 80 million people at least once per month in the U.S.

Read more about the procedure - and who can benefit from it - below.

Hernia Repair​

In the last 3 decades, there have been major advancements in hernia surgery, including the shift from autogenous tissue repair to biological and synthetic meshes, as well as laparoscopic surgery, which offers a minimally invasive approach.

Gallbladder Removal​

We perform a laparoscopic cholecystectomy to remove the gallbladder. This procedure is performed by inserting a small camera and surgical tools through four tiny incisions to see inside your abdomen. At CDP Health Care, this procedure is used as much as possible as it has many advantages, including better recovery time and outcomes.

Colon Procedures​

CDP uses 3D laparoscopic for all these procedures. We are continuously updating our equipment to support a range of surgical specialties. We’re able to use clear bright visualization technology with exceptional depth perception that enhances image processing and quality. This technology goes beyond the limits of what traditional endoscopes can see. It offers Narrow Band Imaging (NBI), an optical technology that helps visualize the most minute vascular and mucosal patterns. Likewise, its Infrared (IR) observation helps surgeons with critical decision making during endoscopic and surgical procedures.

More About the TIF Procedure

TIF is an endoscopic procedure. Doctors use a special TIF device along with an endoscope (a flexible, tube-like instrument inserted into the mouth that can help doctors see inside the body). The TIF device is equipped with grippers and fasteners, which help the doctor repair or re-create the valve so it becomes a better barrier against acid reflux.

Because TIF does not involve an incision (cut) as does traditional open or laparoscopic surgery, it may mean a faster, less painful recovery.

What is a TIF?
Transoral incisionless fundoplication is a minimally invasive procedure to treat acid reflux, also known as heartburn, and other symptoms associated with chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). These symptoms are caused by a malfunctioning valve that allows stomach acid into the esophagus. 

Who can benefit from the TIF procedure?
A gastroenterologist or surgeon may recommend TIF to treat a patient who has GERD symptoms that are not managed well with other treatments such as antacids and drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).
