General Gastrointestinal Surgery

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD), Barrett's Oesophagus and Hiatus Hernia.

Lifestyle advice provided to help manage symptoms.

For those requiring surgery, the procedure is called a Nissan's Fundoplication. This involves the upper part of the stomach being wrapped around the lower part of the oesophagus to strengthen the oesophageal valve.

Following surgery, it can take up to 6-8 weeks before returning to a normal diet. Therefore, we can advise on suitable foods, fluids and textures during this time.

 

Gall Bladder Removal (Cholecystectomy).

The gall bladder releases bile salts into the gut to aid digestion, especially fat digestion. Once removed, it is important to ensure that excess dietary fat is avoided. We will provide advice on healthy eating practices to ensure a suitable diet post-operatively.
