The repair of small hiatal hernias at the time of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is controversial. Proponents of routine hiatal hernia repair do so to reduce the risk of gastroesophageal reflux disease in the post-operative period. We present a video case report of a patient with severe food intolerance and failure to thrive after a sleeve gastrectomy who ultimately improved only after repairing a small hiatal hernia.
