We believe that patients experiencing gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
and other upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract disorders deserve personalized

effective course of treatment for patients. Our surgeons have the skills
and experience to handle these types of complex and highly involved procedures
utilizing advanced techniques and equipment.
Minimally Invasive Foregut Surgery
Foregut surgery includes both minimally invasive and conventional procedures.
Minimally invasive procedures and techniques typically involve smaller
incisions, utilizing advanced technology and equipment to accomplish procedures
that were once only possible through much more intrusive and disruptive
means. This typically allows for less bleeding, reduced scarring, increased
recovery time, and a faster return to normalcy and regular daily activities.
Ask your doctor at Washington Township Medical Foundation if you have
questions about minimally invasive foregut procedures.
