What is reflux surgery? Reflux surgery is performed to help a patient who is experiencing chronic symptoms or mucosal damage produced by the abnormal reflux of stomach acid to the esophagus. Heartburn is a typical symptom. This can result from changes in the barrier between the esophagus and the stomach.
