Esophagus and Stomach Surgery

Commonly known as the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, the foregut area can oftentimes see complications due to excess weight or obesity. From hernia repair to gastrectomy procedures and bypass surgeries, the highly skilled team at Lumin Bariatric is dedicated to innovative, effective treatments.

We encourage all patients to bring any CT scans, endoscopy reports, upper gastrointestinal studies, and motility and pH studies to your appointment, if applicable. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation or for more information about our cutting-edge foregut surgeries.

Our commitment to advancing medical techniques means that we are primarily focused on minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures. These surgeries are often touted as the future, due to their tiny incisions, minimal loss of blood, lessened scarring and speedier recovery times. We offer the following foregut surgical treatments:

Paraesophageal Hernia Repair

Known as a hiatal hernia, this condition occurs when the stomach bulges through an opening in the diaphragm. It bulges up into the chest area, next to the esophagus, and can cause chest pain and difficulty swallowing. Our minimally invasive approach carefully repairs these hernias using tiny incisions made through the abdomen.

Heller Myotomy

This laparoscopic procedure is performed for patients suffering from achalasia, a disorder characterized by weakened esophagus muscles that make swallowing foods and liquids increasingly difficult. Using a small incision, the muscles of the lower esophageal sphincter are opened.

Gastrectomy (Partial/Subtotal)

Our partial or subtotal gastrectomy surgeries remove specific parts of the stomach for a variety of medical reasons, including benign tumors, polyps, perforations in the stomach wall and severe obesity.
