Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common chronic upper gastrointestinal disease with both objective and subjective components. While most cases of GERD are uncomplicated and can be managed with oral medication, refractory cases require surgical intervention. The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of GERD’s gold standard surgical technique, the Nissen fundoplication, with a new surgical technique, magnetic sphincter augmentation.
