Hiatal Hernia: Signs, Symptoms, and Treatment

When the top region of your stomach bulges through the muscle that separates your diaphragm from your abdomen, a hiatal hernia occurs. A tiny hiatal hernia seldom causes symptoms, but a large one might cause food and stomach acid to reflux into your esophagus, causing heartburn or chest pain.

Most people with a hiatal hernia don’t experience any symptoms and won’t need treatment. If you experience recurrent heartburn and acid reflux, you may need medication or surgery.

Antacids, receptor blockers, and proton pump inhibitors are some of the most common medications prescribed by doctors if you have a hiatal hernia. However, these should only be taken as prescribed. Overuse of these drugs may lead to side effects, such as diarrhea or sometimes kidney problems.

Surgery may involve pulling your stomach down into your abdomen and making the opening in your diaphragm smaller or reconstructing an esophageal sphincter. In some cases, hiatal hernia surgery is combined with weight-loss surgery, such as a gastric sleeve surgery in Tijuana, Mexico.

Laparoscopy can be used to treat a hiatal hernia by a single abdominal incision. Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive technique in which a small camera and surgical equipment are inserted through belly incisions by our surgeon. Our surgeon will fix your hiatal hernia while watching images from inside your body on a monitor.
